I’m not going to lie, we love making suncatchers here and after putting together our round up of autumn suncatchers kids can make last week I had a really simple idea that I thought would be good as an after-preschool activity with my daughter, these cute apple suncatchers. They’re super easy to make and unlike suncatchers that use tissue paper they’re super bright too, making a great little craft for autumn.
I’m not ashamed to admit that we are a bit obsessed with making suncatchers, they’re so pretty and easy to make and they cheer the place up a bit, very necessary or a grey autumnal day! Today I’m sharing some of my favourite autumn suncatchers that kids can make, perfect for keeping the kids busy if you’re stuck indoors and need a bit of a creative outlet to keep them occupied.
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 easy 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.
