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.

Fall Tree Flip Book

My daughter’s favorite series of chapter books is the Captain Underpants series. In this series of books, there is a mini section called the Flip-o-rama. It is a mini flip book within the existing story. My daughter loves this and has made several flip books of her own over the last few months. We have played around with them quite a bit and they have become a little bit of an obsession in our house. They are just so much fun to make. With fall on the way, we had a little fun with some fall themed flip books and we just had to share them with you. We have included printable tree templates to help get you going. These would be great to use for all seasons.Fall flip book with printable template. Design them for the seasons and make a flip book for every season. Arts and crafts for kids

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.

Crumpled Newspaper Fall Tree

We are kind of excited about this simple crumpled newspaper fall tree craft.

Corrugated cardboard is a favorite material of ours. The texture of the ridges in the cardboard adds a great feel to any project. I love the earthy look that the cardboard brings to the tree trunk. The crumpled newspaper was fun to work with and form and it added another element of texture to this pretty mixed media project.

Watercolor and Salt Paintings

I love the reaction that occurs when you combine salt and watercolors. Salt paintings are a fun process that your kids will love.

Try sprinkling salt on a freshly painted watercolor picture and see what happens. It is lovely. Another cool process is painting on the salt with watercolors. This is a messy process, but a fun one that will certainly delight your kids. A word of warning, this technique is more about the process and the fun than the final product. There are changes that occur to the paintings upon drying. We have included some notes and suggestions about the salt paintings at the bottom of the post.

Cherry Blossom Drip Art

This is a big week for us. Our little girl turns five this week. I can hardly believe it.  We have been getting things ready for her big Lego themed party, but still managed to paint a little something together in honor of her and her birthday. My daughter was named after my mother. They share the same name with the same lovely meaning, cherry blossom.
