Fun Fall Leaf Crafts for Kids

As the weather gets chillier here in NY state, I'm nestling into Fall Mode with great relish. There was some chicken roasting (we used the oven!!) and I've been eyeing up pumpkins at the grocery store autumn display. I'm even starting to plan ahead to the busy winter holiday season, dreaming up delicious pumpkin and cranberry dishes, because I tend to over-plan like that.
The leaves are starting to turn, with those glorious yellows and oranges ramping up. With that in mind, I wanted to share some of the best leaf crafts we've come across lately
. We spend a bunch of time on Pinterest
collecting and curating great ideas and inspiration for parents, grandparents, aunts and god parents. And I realized that it would be fun to share some here too!
I love leaf crafts for kids because it's such a natural extension of taking walks out in the crisp fall weather, collecting all the bright shapes and colors. The crafts harness that joy of being outdoors and make great rainy weather activities.
And then below are these sweet leaf lanterns
from Susan of River Bliss. You're about to see I'm really into fall leaves and lanterns!
This one is a pretty autumn crown tutuorial
from Kate at Pickle Bums (Side note for US readers: in UK English a bum is a tush / tushie / bottom ).
Here comes another lanterny one! This time from Better Homes and Gardens, their wax paper leaf lanterns
. BONUS: it uses washi tape
, one of my all time favorite things in the world.
What leaf crafts have you been getting up to lately with the littles in your life?
