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.
Over the last few days the weather has seemed to have really changed. It’s not that we had glorious sunshine all summer, far from it, I think we only went to the beach once while the kids were off school, but it suddenly feels more autumnal. The blackberries are ripe, we’ve picked a couple of apples from the tree in our garden and the leaves are starting to fall. Suddenly it really feels like autumn.
A few years back I used to do silversmithing and I must admit that I do miss it a bit. Not that I was great at it, but it was a really good excuse to just do something for myself and I love being able to look at something and think ‘I made this.’ With two kids getting out a blow torch just got a bit too tricky so jewellery making became something that was consigned to my past, I’m super excited therefore to be working with Jewellery Maker today to share about their new craft kits including this DIY charm bracelet which are a great way to fit some creative time and jewellery making into your life. What’s more, read on and I’ve got a great offer for you from Jewellery Maker too!
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!
