The fall season brings many changes and new fun things for our kids to see and experience. It’s a fun time of year for our little ones, as they see the leaves changing colors, the pumpkins everywhere they look, and the scarecrows outside people’s homes. As your kids see these things they may want to make their own. What’s great is that there are so many fun and cute crafts surrounding the fall theme and we’ve rounded up 9 of the best. Check out these fun and easy fall crafts for your kids to do this upcoming season.
1. Painted Fall Leaf
The fun part about this craft is that you get to take your kiddos outside to look for fallen fall leaves. You can take a walk and explore the results of the changing season to find the leaves to use for this craft. This craft is very easy for kids to do since all they need to do is put some paint on the leaf, then turn it over and press it down on a piece of paper to see the pretty pattern it makes.

2. Mod Paper Pumpkins
These cute hanging pumpkins will probably be a little more advanced and therefore, will need to be made by older children. However, that being said, they are so adorable and will make a fun addition to your fall decor in your home. All you need is some paper, scissors, a stapler, and some string. You probably have all of those supplies in your home already, which makes this craft even easier.

3. Handprint Acorn Craft
Kids will love making this craft because they get to get their hands dirty! What kid doesn’t love playing with paint? In order to make this they get to put paint all over their hands to make their painted handprint as the bottom of the acorn. I guarantee they’re going to want to make more than just one of these adorable handprint acorns. That means they can give one to grandma and grandpa!
