This year has been crazy! The 2020 school year is a little different this year, chances are the kids are home during this pandemic. What better opportunity to create some fall craft projects for their art classes. Staying creative will help the kids stay positive and happy.

If you use your imagination, you can create turkeys, pumpkins & owls all with popsicle sticks!

Keep it traditional – carve a pumpkin! 

  • Pumpkin
  • Carving knife (make sure the kids are careful!)
  • A permanent or dry-erase marker to draw the design
  • A spoon or scoop
  • Candles
  • A bag or newspaper

Make sure when carving your pumpkin, you carve somewhere where you do mind getting a little messy.

After you carve, you can bake your pumpkin seeds as a treat for later!

Fall Leaf Prints

  • Paint
  • Paint or sponge brush
  • Leaves
  • White paper

This is such an easy craft to do with the kids! Just paint your leaves with your paint, press the painted leaves firm on a piece of paper and slowly lift to see your beautiful creation! Meaingful Mama has an amazing tutorial on how to create these beautiful painted leaves to display during fall!

Another option for fall leaves is to paint them directly with fun and vibrant colors. You can put dots, lines or solid colors on them and the kids will be so proud. If you want to preserve and keep them for years to come, try laminating them after the paint dries!
