Fall Craft Ideas for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting our family.

Fall is here!  Can we get a collective sigh of relief as we breathe in the pumpkin, dry leaves, and chimney smoke?  The hot summer days are gone and it’s time to pull out the sweaters and leggings!  Hooray!  When you have children though, fall also means more days inside because of colder weather and rainy days.  What you need is a set of great fall craft ideas for kids and here it is!  These are all pretty simple and can mostly be done with things you already have in your house.  How great is that?

This is a great list of simple craft projects to do with your kids this fall.  Most of the supplies are things you probably already have around your house!  | candleinthenight.com

  1. I love these ideas! Just a warning, though… glueing yarn and tissue paper can get frustrating to some children — once their fingers get glue-y, the yarn/tissue wants to stick to their fingers instead of where they want it. Especially for those who are picky about where the yarn/tissue lands. I’ve seen it in many preschoolers!!
    Not saying don’t do it, just be prepared. Not that I’m one to worry about messy projects, but maybe a wet washcloth to keep their fingers clean would help.
    Very cute ideas!
