Fall is almost here! The weather here in Texas may take a little longer to get the hint, but that can’t stop us from bringing on all the pumpkin, warm colors, apple cider, and coziness. For parents, a new season means new topics of play, discovery, and learning with our kids. So if you’re ready to embrace fall at home, we’ve lined up some awesome fall-themed crafts for kids. And if you’re still holding onto the last bit of summer, no worries…just save this link for later!

Fall “Snow” Globe
Don’t worry, we’re not getting too ahead of ourselves with the seasons! We love this “snow” globe because it brings long-lasting excitement and joy. Rather than a picture or painting that might lose its appeal after a day (or hour), the falling leaves in this seasonal globe might just wow your little one for a long time. 

Who says snow globes are just for winter?? This Falling Leaves Sensory Bottle is a cute and easy Fall kids craft or decor idea!

Beaded Pumpkins
Keeping with the theme of crafts that entertain kids for more than a few minutes, we think your kids will love making these 3D pumpkins with beads and pipe cleaners. You don’t need much for this craft, just some pipe cleaners and pony beads. Plus, letting little hands put beads on a pipe cleaner is a great fine motor skills exercise!

This beaded pipe cleaner Indian corn craft is SO FUN! And it's so simple to make. All you need are two simple supplies that you can usually find at the dollar store. This is such a fun and easy kids craft and a super fun Thanksgiving activity. I love how realistic they end up looking!
