Fall is almost here and it's time to craft something seasonal. If you have toddlers, make something with them and have fun! Here are some ideas for making autumn a reality and enjoying it with your children.
Red, orange, yellow and brown tones mix with the remains of the green leaves. It's just so magical, don't you think so? To capture the spirit of autumn in a sensory container, put together this sensory soup. It can be put together quickly and easily, promotes fine motor skills and reflects the swirling, colorful leaves of autumn.
Fragrant baked cotton balls are a great craft idea for this fall. Really fun deconstructing the art you've made - and who can resist the smooth art process? Grab some simple materials and have fun with your kids!
Make adorable play dough with autumn-inspired spices! It will smell totally divine and your kids will love to play with it. If you'd rather not use whole spices or can't find them, this small sample cup activity with a variety of ground spices from your spice cabinet is just as fun.
This craft is dedicated to Halloween. This is a DIY Jack-O-Landern garland made from your child's paintings!

This is another type of fall scent - that amazing apple pie modeling clay. Not only will this apple play batter be fun to pretend to make apple pie, but your house will smell like apple pie too! The best thing about this homemade apple and cinnamon modeling clay is that it's flavor safe. We don't recommend eating it, of course, but great for kids to play with as it is non-toxic.
