Fall can be such an exciting time, offering a variety of fun activities like fall fairs, pumpkin carving, Halloween and Thanksgiving! To celebrate this time of year and make some memories you can hold on to forever, American Legend Homes invites you to gather the neighborhood kids and create some fall crafts together. Here are five easy fall crafts that anyone can make!
These fun brooms can be hung from the front porch and are a perfect decoration for Halloween. They are easy to make and don't take much time at all! The best part about this craft is that it doesn't include any items that create a mess!
This creepy, crawly craft is perfect for positioning not just around the house, but also for outside in the bushes on Halloween. Spiders are just one of the many spooky images used to represent Halloween but these Styrofoam cup spiders bring a level of innocence and playfulness to the holiday, so it doesn't seem so scary for kids.
Kids can make their popsicle stick scarecrows as scary or as cute as they want! You can display them in the window, give them as gifts to grandparents and even add magnets to the back for your fridge. The supply list for these is short and simple, and kids can make other fun Halloween characters out of the popsicle sticks using the same materials. (Think witches, Frankenstein or owls!)
These fun pool noodle pumpkin prints make the process of painting pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving neat and easy. Rather than giving the kids paint brushes and an endless amount of paint, cut the very edge off a pool noodle and dip that in orange paint. The pool noodle provides the perfect round shape and textured look to your fall pumpkin collection.
Leaf handprints aren’t just a fall craft and celebration of the season. They are a family treasure that every parent holds on to. (It gives you the chance to look back in five, ten, even fifteen years and remember just how tiny your kids used to be!) It’s also fun for the kids to dip their hands in different color paint and decorate the leaf handprints afterward. Leaf handprints can get messy so maybe move to your American Legend Homes backyard for this one!
Homemade crafts are keepsakes you will want to treasure forever. Use them to decorate for the fall season and to create memories throughout your American Legend home. Doing them with your American Legend neighbors makes them even more memorable!
