INSPIRATION: 15 Fall Crafts for Kids

My boys have been attending a Finnish mom and tots group.  We speak Finnish at home and they really seem to enjoy having a little group where they can interact, sing and play in Finn.  The parents in the group take turns bringing a snack or craft and next week I'm to bring the craft.  Since Halloween is over now, I think a fall craft will be perfect for our group.  As I was browsing Pinterest for fall craft inspiration, I came across so many fun fall crafts that I thought I'd share some with you.  I haven't exactly decided what I am going to do for our fall craft next week, but I have a lot of inspiration here!  I'm leaning towards something with leaves and/or acorns (my fave!).

Leaf crafts are a must for fall:
This Thanksgiving tree is a really sweet idea.  The child writes on the leaves what he/she is thankful for.

A pumpkin craft is another must:
I love this Paper Pumpkin Mobile

Pumpkin Spice Scented Play Dough.  I'm sure this would encourage more play dough tasting with my toddler. :)

I have a lot of acorns left from my felted acorn projects (you can find them here, here and here) and the next two crafts would be so cute to do with them.

I also have a thing for pom-poms (see my pom-pom projects here, here and here).
These Pom-Pom Apples are too cute!

Here are a couple more fun leaf crafts:

Fabric Leaf Tree with your child hand and arm as the branches and trunk.

These are cute Leaf Drawings

Here's a way to make something fun from your nature walk findings:

We can't forget all the woodland creatures that are perfect for fall:

I hope you've found some kids fall crafts inspiration here.  My little guy loves crafts and I think we are going to be craving together this weekend. :)  Happy Friday!

  1. oh my gosh the hedgies and owls!!!!!! too cute!

  2. I love those acorn babies :) Too cute! xo Kristin

    1. They would be so sweet for a little girl, although I'm sure my little guy would play with them too. :)

  3. I used to do leaf rubbings when I was little. So neat! I totally love the pinecone hedgehogs too! I think any of those crafts would be a lot of fun. :)

  4. So many fun activities. I love that play doh. :)

  5. Oh I adore the woodland creatures and pumpkin spice scented play dough! That sounds awesome too.

  6. oh lucy would love any of them (and so would her mom!) ;)
    the pom-pom apples would be kind of neat for this group - the kids could of course help with wrapping the yarn and snipping the ends - probably something most of the kids have never done!
    i also love the leafy hedgehog - totally simple enough for the youngest ones (if the face is already drawn/printed for them).
    i better get on them snacks...!

  7. These are adorable! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Great roundup! I really need to do more crafts with the kids--or at least Gus--I forget that he's still pretty little. LOVE the hedgehogs. I'm predicting hedgehogs for next trendy animal, post fox :)

  9. Very cute crafts! I really like the owls and hedgehogs. Fun!

    Have a great day.

  10. I stopped over from the Monday Funday Link Party. I have Pinned this so I can look at it again I have to do these crafts with my kids, thank you so much for sharing.

  11. These are all seriously adorable. My daughter is studying hedgehogs next week so I'm going to try a few of the craft projects with her.

  12. This is such a great round up! So many fun crafts - more for me to try with my little H! Thanks for including our fabric leaf tree! :) We both really loved making them!
