Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials, the linky that often gets shortened to pintorials as it won’t fit in my page title! Last week the linky went into full blown seasonal crafting mode and we got the most entries so far – hurray! To celebrate I thought I’d share a load of the fun Halloween activities for kids that were linked up last week.
Autumn and Halloween
With Halloween stuff filling up the shops I thought it might be fun to make a stained glass pumpkin suncatcher. When I saw some brightly coloured cellophane for sale I thought it would be a great way to make the colours a bit brighter than with tissue paper and with the end result looks like stained glass and it also gave us a great opportunity to talk about colour mixing!
It seems strange to say this but I think Autumn and Fall crafts are starting to slow down now as we all start thinking about Halloween. I figure though that gives me one more chance though to make the most of autumn so here’s some easy apple activities for kids to make.
You know how sometimes great ideas pop into your head? Well ten minutes before I was due to pick up my son from playgroup I had this idea for this easy autumn tree craft and I knew we had to make it. Thankfully it was stupidly quick to prepare and it made the journey back from playgroup much more fun so I thought that I would share it! I’ve also shared some of our favourite autumn crafts for kids at the end of this post so make sure you check those out too.
Yep, Autumn is well and truly here (doesn’t it feel like it’s been here for a couple of weeks now?!) With a new season though comes a chance to do new things so this weeks Tuesday Tutorials is all about sharing some of the great autumn crafts for preschoolers that were linked up last week. That’s my week pretty much sorted!
