One of my favorite things to do in the fall time is to hit up as many apple orchards and pumpkin farms that I possibly can. I love the cooler weather and look forward to drinking apple cider and eating cinnamon sugar donuts. Yum! We always hit up our favorite fall farms: Kuiper’s and Goebberts Pumpkin Farm! There’s something so pleasant about visiting a farm in the fall! We enjoy doing fall crafts too when we can’t make it to the farm! I’d love to share my Fall Craft Bundle with you HERE.
Crafts Included in the Bundle
This Fall Crafts Bundle includes 14 adorable crafts that are perfect for September, October and November. Whether you take your kids to a local farm, apple orchard or discuss all things fall in the classroom, these crafts are a wonderful addition.
All of the crafts come with step by step instructions to print and assemble the little characters. Each of them make a cute bulletin board display or wall decor. I’m going to tell you how I would use each below!
The first Fall Craft from the bundle is this sunflower craft. In our area, there’s always a sunflower field that people visit to take pictures in the fall. It’s a short window of time before all of the flowers are gone, but the fields are beautiful! We like to visit the sunflowers in the late summer and then put up these sunflower crafts as the seasons change!
The acorn craft is a classic fall bulletin board piece. It can go with so many read alouds and activities. We like to go on a nature walk to find leaves and acorns that have fallen from the trees. I like to pair the kids crafts with “We’re nutty about _____” on the bulletin board!
If you’re going to create an acorn craft, you have to do the squirrel as well! Squirrels are everywhere in the fall, so you can’t go wrong with this craft and a story like Scaredy Squirrel or The Squirrels Who Squabbled!
Square Pumpkin Craft
This fall craft speaks for itself if you’ve ever read Spookly the Square Pumpkin. We love this story and read it every year! The kids love to make inferences and give reasons why they would love to have an imperfect pumpkin at their house. This pumpkin craft goes perfectly with the book and a discussion about how everyone is different.
Scarecrow, Pumpkin and Crow Fall Crafts
Some crafts just look amazing together! The scarecrow, pumpkin and crow crafts are great to put together on a bulletin board display that says “Welcome to our Pumpkin Patch” or “It’s Fall Y’all”. Some kids can create scarecrows, others can make pumpkins and crows! You’ll have the most festive decor out there.
If your kids can’t carve real pumpkins, they can complete this friendly Jack-O-Lantern craft instead. The face is already created for you, so it’s easy to cut out and assemble. We like to do these at the end of October just in time for Halloween! If you add it to a bulletin board, it can say “Our Class is Fab-BOO-lous!”
Raking Leaves Fall Craft
While learning about different kinds of leaves, why they change color and fall to the ground, this craft is a great way to get students excited about fall. Each child can create their own cute raking leaves child to hang up or take home. A bulletin board to go with it could say “Raking in Good Books” with some of the class’s favorite titles.
“We Are Having a HOOT This Fall”! Every fall, we read Owl Moon and talk a little about owls. It’s a beautifully poetic story that allows us to talk about rhyme and what’s going on in the story. This owl craft makes for a fun activity while we discuss.
Leaf Man Craft
Have you read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert? The story takes the reader on a fun adventure wherever the wind blows the leaves. Leaves are used to create all of the images! Making this leaf man craft is a fun way to wrap up a unit about leaves and fall. You can even make a bulletin board that says “A Leaf Man’s Got To Go Where The Wind Blows”!
Jumping in Leaves Fall Craft
Every child likes to jump in a big pile of leaves! To kick off fall and all the fun things we can do, we make this craft! We talk about all kinds of things we can do during the fall months! It can of course be paired with “We are Jumping into…” as a bulletin board!
Fall Bird Craft
The bird craft is a simple craft that can be used in many lessons! We like to read Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak with this craft! The book explores many different changes happening, including the bird’s heading south for the winter. Put the sweet birds up with “Fall into Reading” or “Fall into Learning” on your wall!
Fall Corn Craft
While visiting the fall farms in our area, we always see dried corn. It’s always beautifully colored and makes lovely decor around the house. I didn’t realize until a few years ago that sweet corn (the kind you eat), fall corn and popcorn, all grow from different plants! They’re all different! I just assumed they were each a different phase of a corn’s life. You learn something new every day! This craft is an adorable one to use in October while visiting farms or in November when getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. If you want to add it to a bulletin board, you can put up wording that says, “Ms. _____’s Corny Class”!
All of these crafts come with instructions and many of them come with a coloring page option if you don’t want to print onto colored paper. The kids will love doing these hands on activities the entire fall season! You can grab the Fall Bundle HERE.
