With so many leaves falling right now it’s easy to miss out on another easy source of crafts and activities for kids – acorns! I love anything that can be picked up on a nice walk and repossessed into something fun when you get home so these easy acorn crafts for kids are absolutely perfect. Today I’m sharing one of our favourite autumn activities as well as some of my favourite acorn activities and crafts from my favourite bloggers.
Over the years we’ve shared a few autumn leaf crafts for kids so I thought it might be nice to bring them all together along with some of my favourite autumn leaf crafts from other bloggers. Autumn is a great time for crafting with kids, whether you want to make the most of the free craft materials around, explore the change in seasons or just enjoy the different colours it’s a lot of fun to share it with kids and I’m sure there will be loads of ideas in this that you and your children will love!
This mess free pumpkin craft is perfect for kids and for parents. Why? Well it’s great for kids because it’s fun to play with and it helps teach about colour mixing and it’s great for parents because it’s mess free! This mess free pumpkin is similar to the mess free autumn tree we made last year so if you like mess free activities for kids it’s worth checking that one out too! I’ve also shared a little video tutorial on how to make this – just check out the video below.
This sweet lego autumn leaves craft is perfect for little hands and a great way to introduce the change in season. I love using household objects in a slightly different way so using lego instead of a normal paintbrush seems a lot more interesting!
We’ve started to do a few autumn crafts over the last week and this sweet fine motor skills craft was a quick idea after my kids asked for one more thing to make. At six my son is good with his letters but he’s enjoying helping my daughter (3) learn her alphabet. Her interest in letters has come as a total surprise to me but I’m happy to go with it! This autumn letter craft is super quick to set up and can be easily adapted as you’ll see below.
