Fall is here and these September days are really starting to feel Autumnal especially with the kids all back at school. So this week I’m featuring everything Autumn!

Autumn is a time of wonder and excitement at the end of summer. Yes it’s time for Pumpkin spice latte and sweater weather, but it’s also a time for crafting and creating.

The crisp fall air is inviting us to make a batch of homemade apple cider. The leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees in piles on the ground. The lack of sunlight in the afternoons is a reminder that it’s time to get cozy inside with a good book.

We have so many fun autumn crafts for kids to share with you. These kids fall crafts are easy to put together, and a great way to spend quality time with kids of all ages.

There are so many fall crafts and activities that kids of all ages can enjoy. From coloring pages to pumpkin patch crafts, there’s something for everyone. So grab your children and pick up some materials, because this fall you’re going to have a blast!
