Fall is in the air!  With the cold weather coming, it’s important to have indoor activities for your children.

The changing colorful leaves are the perfect inspiration for these 10 simple fall crafts that you can do with your kids.

Easy Fall Leaf Craft for Preschoolers and Toddlers

A step by step guide for this easy fall craft with preschoolers and toddlers using contact paper and paper leaves. Great activity for practicing gross motor skills.

No Sew Fabric Pumpkins – Upcycle Your Old Shirts and Sweaters

These adorable little fabric pumpkins are all over Pinterest! They are so easy to make! If you have any old shirts, sweaters, or come across a cheap yard sale find, this is a brilliant way to upcycle the fabric into these cute and festive fall pumpkins.

Fall Slime Recipe

Make this special fall slime recipe that’s too fun not to share with friends.  It’s a stress reliever to play with for adults, too!  The acrylic pieces (even the pumpkins!) stayed suspended in the slime in spite of being a little heavier than what you typically add to slime.

Fall Scented Cooked Playdough Recipe

Are you looking for a fall playdough recipe? This fall scented cooked playdough recipe is a variation on our best playdough recipe, and allows you to whip up perfect homemade fall playdough in just a few minutes!

Kids will love that they were able to help make play dough with their own hands, and adding essential oils to the mix makes this dough smell MUCH better than what you can find in the store!

Just make sure your kids know they still can’t eat the dough- essential oils are not meant to be consumed, and play dough is not designed to be eaten!

The Cutest Fall Tree Craft for Preschoolers

Try this super fun fall tree craft using tissue paper!   It is fall and the leaves are falling down. We may be sad to see the first sign of winter coming.

But if your kids are anything normal, they are THRILLED with a great new activity, jumping in leaves! To celebrate this season, make this beautiful fall tree craft for preschoolers!

Seasons of a Tree Artwork

This easy art project uses cue-tips to paint trees with leaves to match the changing seasons. Great for all ages, as it’s simple enough for a small child to do but fun for older kids as well.

Start with the green leaves and then do a version that showed how they would change…as October folds into November and the leaves changed from green to orange, ask your kids which of the trees on the fridge the leaves were looking more like now.

Free Printable Autumn Word Search Coloring Page

Welcome autumn with this Free Printable Autumn Word Search Coloring Page!  It’s the perfect mix of brain games and a coloring book!  With school just starting, this is the perfect worksheet to incorporate autumn vocabulary words!

What are you waiting for?! Go grab some colored pencils and a pencil sharpener and get to work!!

Kids DIY Autumn Leaf Wreath

This Kids DIY Autumn Leaf Wreath is simple enough for kids of any age to make, and is something can do with your kids after school and on the weekends that wouldn’t take up too much time.

Wax and Water color Leaf Resist Art

Whether you are taking a scenic drive into the mountains to collect leaves or exploring your neighborhood, this is a fantastic project. Creating seasonal artwork with kids offers such a fabulous chance to mix up creative time with learning.

As the season changes from summer to autumn, kids become fascinated with leaves. This fun art lesson helps them discover the beauty of the leaf and the details that it possesses. This project is great for kids of all ages as it is quick, easy and beautiful.

Fall DIY Squishies

These DIY squishies for the Fall are darling and supportive in creating a quieter and calmer dining experience. The special foam designed by Fairfield World works great for this project and can be found at local craft stores.

Squishies are all the rage with kiddos right now in a pretty big age range so these are fabulous for most all ages. The big bonus is that while they add a dimension of activity to the table, they are also super decorative and fun.
