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.
I love paper bag crafts for kids, they’re the perfect mixture of upcycling, crafting and making something that the kids can play with afterwards! Today’s paper bag craft is no exception with this sweet, umm I mean scary paper bag witch craft for kids. She might look like she’s friendly but watch out, she’d just as quickly turn you into a toad!
Yesterday we picked the first of the apples from our apple tree (woo hoo!) which means that as far as I’m concerned it’s the perfect time to share this simple apple tree craft for kids. It’s super easy to set up and perfect for encouraging a little chat about the change in seasons.
Halloween is my favourite time for crafting and my kids love it too so I’m very excited to share this cupcake liner bat craft for kids today. It’s super simple to make, uses materials you probably already have and I’ve even included a little video that you can watch to check how it’s made. Perfect!
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!
