Scarecrow Paper Bag Craft for Kids



Halloween has come and gone!  We are now thinking about Thanksgiving here in the US.  I wanted to do a craft with the kids for this month's All Things Kids Series but was not sure what.  We have been enjoying paper bag crafts.  So we ended up making classic Scarecrow Paper Bags.  A fun craft for kids of multiple ages.  And a great way to get in the spirit of Fall and the Thanksgiving holiday coming up for us.

Leaf Activities and Crafts for Kids



Fall is in the air here in the south. We have had a lovely week of cool mornings and not too hot afternoons.  I could live like this all year!  But since that is not reality it makes Fall my favorite time of the year.  I not only love the weather but the activities, holidays, and traditions that come with it.  Finding fun ways to play and craft with leaves is one of our fall traditions.  I set out to gather an amazing collection of Leaf Activities and Crafts for Kids to inspire me and you this fall. Now to narrow it down to which one to start with first.  Hope you find a few to try as well.

Counting with Apple Cereal


We bought a large bag of cereal at the store.  It was not getting eaten fast enough so I put it to use for learning.  I set my oldest up with a fun "Counting with Apple Cereal"  activity one evening.  I like finding ways to reuse things, even food. This was a great way to let him practice counting and use up a little cereal too.

I wish my sister had a blog because she always has the best ideas. If she blogged it would make it easy to share her awesomeness with the word, lol.  Today I am going to share one of the fun ideas she shared with us.   One afternoon during summer break we got together to tie dye shirts and eat ice cream!  She brought the ice cream and I had the tie dye!  One fun get together crafting and eating.  This Pop Rock Ice Cream was a big hit at my house.

Playdough Tree Monsters

My kids LOVE playdough.  For some reason playing with it outside is even more fun to them than playing with it inside at the table.  They are often satisfied with simple loose parts and playdough on their picnic table. However, I decided to mix it up for them today. Playdough Tree Monsters would be a lot of fun and a great way to explore something new.
