Acorn & Nature Crafts


Yesterday was a beautiful autumn day. With the weather getting cooler everyday, I wanted to make sure that we enjoyed every second of the outdoors as we could before the cold weather hits. We went for a walk to look at the foliage, we flew a kite & cleaned up our yard. The leaves have begun to fall & so have the acorns. Our yard is covered in acorns. My daughter helped me gather up the acorns. We filled up her Hello Kitty bag with them. Now what we were going to do with them all?

Egg Carton Pumpkin & Jack-O-Lantern Crafts

Egg Carton Jack-O-Lantern Craft for kids. Fall autumn & Halloween Crafts & activities.

My picky daughter has recently discovered that she loved eggs. She like them in every form, scrambled, fried & hard-boiled.  This is great news to me, as my husband & I love them too. We just finished an extra-large carton of eggs. Normally, I would store the egg carton away to use for craft projects at a later date, but since we are moving I can no longer hoard things away. What does that mean to us? That means last night we made a lot of egg carton crafts.

We decided that we were going to make pumpkins & jack-o-lanterns, so we cut up our carton & painted each piece in orange & then let them dry.


For our first craft, we cut a stem & leaf out of construction paper.


We glued them down to another piece of paper. We took 7 carton pieces & glued them around each other to form a circle.



Here was Mai’s finished project. Don’t forget that each child’s abilities are different in crafting.


Mommy went a little further & made her project into a jack-o-lantern. We used construction paper for the face.

Next we made more jack-o-lanterns.

Glue two painted carton section to each other.


Cut out and glue a stem to the top.


Fold a pipe cleaner in half & curl the ends to form vines. Glue construction paper leaves to the end.


You may leave these as pumpkins or cut out small face pieces out of black construction paper.

This week we made our first pumpkin craft of the year. We made some simple cupcake liner pumpkins. We glued our liners down to a piece of paper with a glue stick & drew in our stems with markers.

Button Indian Corn Craft

Button Indian Corn Craft - Fall / autumn arts and crafts for kids

September is upon us. Next week we say goodbye to August and inch that much closer to autumn. The fall decor is already in the stores. There are a ton of pumpkins, items adorned with leaves and ears of Indian corn. My daughter was very curious about the Indian corn. “Can you eat it, mama?” Does it taste like candy?” Is it like candy corn?” I have never tasted it and I do not think it tastes like candy corn, but it sure does look pretty. Last night we made some of that pretty corn in an easy fall craft.

Button Indian Corn Craft

Cut a husk out of green construction paper and a cob out of yellow paper.



Glue the cob onto a piece of construction paper & then glue the husk cut-out over the cob.


Glue buttons in yellows, whites, reds, browns and blacks onto the cob. Let your project dry.

CD Printed Fall Tree

We did a little bit of cleaning last week and stumbled across a ton of old scratched DVDs & CDs that do not play anymore. Since I hate throwing anything away, I was determined to make use of them. CDs are wonderful for a variety of crafts, but my favorite use for them is for making simple printmaking projects. These CD printed fall trees are quick, easy and perfect for the fall.
