Hooray for fall! It's one of the most wonderful times of the year! The morning and evening air is cool and crisp, the leaves are starting to change colors and the days are getting shorter. Why not spend those long evenings at home doing eco-crafts with the kids? It's a fun way to bond after a long busy day at school and a great way to upcycle many different materials that would otherwise be hitting the trash or recycling bin.
We've rounded-up 10 easy, eco-friendly fall crafts that you can make and enjoy with your kids. So make a cup of hot cocoa, grab your art supplies from the craft closet, hit the recycling bin and get crafting for a fall that's full of fun!
1. Leaf and Walnut Regatta
Looking for a festive fall dining room centerpiece that can double as a fun activity for the kids? Make these simple leaf and walnut boats for your own tabletop Regatta. This is a craft that will keep children entertained for hours as they race their winning sailboat.
2. Fall Button Branch
If you are like me and have a large jar of buttons in your laundry room – this is the perfect fall craft for your littles! It’s super simple, children of all ages can enjoy it and when you group red, yellow and orange buttons together, the end result is an autumn masterpiece.
3. Fall Memory Jar
Fall comes and goes by so quickly, why not save a little bit of it in a memory jar to look back on when the days get dark and cold? It would be fun to add a photo of your family on your fall family trip, then add found items from a fall hike, along with any other memento that reminds you of fall.
