Wool needle felting is a great craft project for the whole family, but younger kids are often excluded due to the very sharp wool felting needles involved. However, the kit shown above – the adorable Autumn Fall Felted Acorn Kit – requires zero needle work, making this wool craft an ideal choice if you have younger children. The autumn kit, made by the always delightful Etsy shop Fairyfolk, teaches you to make the most wonderful autumn-minded handmade felted acorns . You can turn your acorns into tiny decorations, create a fall table centerpiece with them or use them for any other number of craft projects. They’d also make really cute little stocking stuffers for kids. The kit comes with easy, step-by-step, directions and everything else you’ll need to make 12 lovely felted acorns in gorgeous shades of fall, including plenty of wool, glue and fresh clean acorn caps. Young children will need supervision while using the glue. Keep reading to see two more awesome fall wool felt needle kits.
Now, if your kiddos are old enough to use a wool felting needle the cute Fairyfolk pumpkin making kit can’t be beat. How old is old enough for wool felting needles? Felting needles are VERY sharp, but I personally think kids aged 8 or 9 years of age can manage starting to learn how to handle a needle (with supervision). Consider your child’s abilities and use your best judgment though. The pumpkin kit teaches you how to make 6 sweet smaller pumpkins or 3 medium sized pumpkins in bright orange, peachy orange and rusty orange. These are perfect little pumpkins for creating Halloween crafts or fall decor or your child can use them with dolls for fun imaginative play. If you’re looking for a fall critter, instead of a nature item, Fairyfolk also has a wonderful tiny hoot woodland owl kit. This little guy stands about 3 inches high, will stand up on his own and is the perfect toy for kids or can be used for autumn decor. The owl kit, like all Fairyfolk needle felting kits, comes with everything you need to make your craft.
