Autumn Art & Craft Ideas
Help your child glue a leaf on a piece of paper, draw legs, arms, and a head to create a person. Help your child to name the leaf people
Torn Paper Tree
Your children can make a torn paper tree with brown paper for the trunk and red, orange and yellow paper for the leaves. Help them tear the pieces of paper into any shape they want and glue them on.
Cut an apple in half laterally, separating the top from the bottom. You should be able to see the "star" that the core forms in the apple. Put some red or green non-toxic paint in a shallow container, (a pie tin works well) and show your child how to dip the apple in the paint and press onto a
piece of paper creating an apple print.
Take your child on a nature walk. Give her a Ziploc bag for collecting leaves, twigs, acorns, etc. Take your time and talk about everything that you see. This is a great time for your child to learn about colors, shapes, animals, seasons and plants. When you get home help your child to glue all of the things they found onto a piece of paper and make a collage.
