Our favorite time of year is around the corner again and with it all of that beautiful fall scenery. This project is inspired by our Paint & Fold Winter Reflections. This is a favorite technique of ours. It is a fun and simple way for the kiddos (and adults) to create beautiful reflections.
If you enjoy our Paint and Fold Autumn Reflections, you may also like some of our other autumn arts & crafts.
This may sound “corn”y, but I just adore Indian corn in the fall. I love all the colors, the reds, the oranges and the blues, to name a few. They make beautiful autumn decorations and are a lovely and simple craft for the little ones to make. We compiled a list of some of favorite Indian corn crafts for kids. We have corn made out of Fruit Loops and even corn inspired by one of our favorite artists.
Our projects are often inspired by the great artists. Last year, we made leaf and pumpkin pop art inspired by Andy Warhol. We were inspired again this year to mix pumpkins with various famous artist styles. These artist inspired pumpkin crafts are easy, cute, colorful and perfect for this time of year.
While cleaning out our kitchen the other day, I stumbled across a full package of brown paper lunch bags. We do not use them for lunches anymore… but oh! the crafting possibilities. When you have about 50 paper bags and a lazy weekend, what else is there to do but make a bunch of fall crafts.
Tissue paper is a favorite craft material of ours. There are so many ways that you can use it. You can cut it, tear it and crumple it up to add some color to any project. You can make lovely stained glass or luminaries. If you use bleeding tissue paper, you can even paint with it. The possibilities are endless. Tissue paper is so versatile. Here are over 40 great and inspiring tissue paper craft ideas that you and your kids can make together.
My 4 year old daughter loves to play pretend. One of her favorite things is to play school. This usually works pretty good for me because when I am teacher, she is attentive and listens. We had a geography lesson first, which went pretty well and then we went on to an art lesson.

My daughter has recently decided that she is now a rock collector. She loves to bend down and pick up rocks wherever she sees them. Lucky for her, our driveway is filled & lined in rocks. Yesterday, she sat in the driveway & carefully picked a bunch to bring indoors and add to our growing pile.
