The air is fresh, but your little fairy can still rule the garden. With a thick needle and string (or wool), get your preschooler to "sew" some soft-but-not-crunchy leaves together. Tie them around their head to form a crown for your Leaf King or Queen.
It's harvesting time, and what better way to decorate your table than with a bowl of these cute beaded corns? This is a great craft for preschoolers working on tricky finger skills and beading. You'll need pipe cleaners (chenille stems) and Fall-colored beads to make these mini corns.
Halloween is creeping up on us! Include your preschooler in the fun with these spooktacular leaf ghosts. Get your child to gather leaves, paint them white and add facial features with a black marker. These leaf ghosts make cute place cards, or you can stick them around the home or string them for a garland.
Fall-inspired nature animals like this Bark Owl are a hoot for all ages! All it takes is a wonderful walk outdoors where everyone gathers nature's craft supplies - pieces of bark, twigs, acorn shells, small autumn leaves, and even moss. Combine the abundance for everyone to create their favorite forest creature - think hedgehogs, owls, tortoises, birds, badgers, squirrels, mice, foxes, or leaf people.
For toddlers and preschoolers, this is the season to learn red, brown, yellow, and orange. This craft involves letting your child rip and tear tissue paper or thin autumn leaves and pasting them onto sticky contact sheets. You can then attach the contact sheet to leaf-frame shapes or stick it to a paper plate center. Hang the craft in front of a window for the sun to shine through and highlight the beautiful Fall colors.
