23 Adorable Pumpkin Crafts For Kids For The Fall

I know that I may be a little premature in my excitement, but my favorite season begins next month and I couldn’t be happier. I adore the fall & I feel the same way about fall crafts. 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.

20 Character Inspired Kid's Crafts Inspired by Disney, Pixar, Dr. Suess & more...

A few weeks ago we took our daughter to the movies to see ‘Inside Out’. I cried, my daughter laughed & we all left the movie happy. After the movie, my daughter insisted that we all call her Joy after the main character.  She wanted to wear green every day & asked people what they thought of her blue hair. This is a common occurrence in our house. Her character changes from week to week. She has been Hello Kitty, Elsa & other assorted characters and animals. Not only does she enjoy pretending to be them, she loves making crafts that are inspired by them. We have made many crafts over the years & have stumbled across quite a few amazing ones as well. Here are some of our favorites.

Fruity Pebbles Pancakes

FruityPebblesPancakes.jpgMost mornings I have a hard time leaving the house to go to work. I love the mornings in our home, our daughter will wake up & I will hear her sweet little voice calling out to us. “Mama, Dada, I awake.” I will go into her room and see that sweet smiling face & my heart will just turn to putty. She will jump up & wrap her arms around my neck & if I have time we will spend a few minutes together before I have to run off to work. On the weekends, I am excited that I do not have to leave this lovely scene, I get to stay home & enjoy my time with my family. Today was a little different. I was hoping that it was still Friday & that it was time to go to work. No such luck. It was indeed Saturday & my daughter really was having an epic meltdown. We are not going to get into details that is for another day, but it was brutal. Things just did not seem to be going our little girl’s way & she did not quite know how to handle it. It took a bit to calm her down, but she finally started to slowly snap out of it. A meltdown like that required a little extra cheering up, so mommy made a special treat for Mai for breakfast in hopes that we would get to see our smiley girl again.

Fruity Pebbles Pancakes


1 cup of all purpose flour

1 cup of crushed Fruity Pebbles

1 tbsp of brown sugar

2 tsp of baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 large egg

1 cup of milk

2 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions: Pour the Fruity Pebbles on a plate or a bowl & smash with a potato masher or spoon to make crumbs. Put aside. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk & vegetable oil and stir well. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg & add to the rest of the batter. Stir in your Fruity Pebbles crumbs until evenly distributed. In a frying pan or griddle set to medium heat, (Test with water, water drops should dance across the surface when added. Lower or higher temp if needed) pour about 1/8 of cup for small pancakes or 1/4 cup for regular sized. When pancakes bubble, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.

It got Mai’s and Daddy’s stamp of approval & even put a smile back on my sad girl’s face. Two thumbs up, mama!
