Fall Craft Ideas For Kids

Fall Crafts for KidsOctober is the time when we turn our eyes to fall. Parents and teachers alike are scrambling for new themed ideas of what to do with their kids. Especially when kids are still growing and young, it’s fun to do crafts with hand and foot prints because it commemorates so nicely how they grow year after year.

So here is a Halloween-y footprint, and a fall-y hand print idea. I’ve done both of them with my kids at German School and the parents love it.

Hand Print Fall Tree

You Need: Brown paper, fall-colored finger paint, scissors, glue stick


1. Cut out a tree trunk out of brown paper.

2. Trace child’s hand on brown paper and cut it out.

3. Piece trunk and hand together on paper (We made cards by folding an 8X11 white paper in half) and glue them down.

4. With finger paint, use finger to create leaves around the hand print.

5. Decorate rest of card as you like.

1. Cover your child’s feet in paint, one at a time, and print them onto the black paper.
