It can be challenging to think of ways to keep the kids occupied. Especially when the weather starts to cool down.
At Wiley’s Pharmacy, we know the importance of keeping kids active, both physically and mentally. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some fun autumn crafts you can do with the kids to nurture their creativity and celebrate the season.
Pumpkin Carving and Decorating– Carving Jack-O-Lanterns is a classic autumn activity. But if your little one is too young to use a knife, decorating pumpkins can be really fun too. Some non-toxic paint will bring your creations to life. Use glue to stick on some googly eyes or glitter.
Halloween Spiders– At the end of October, is everyone’s favorite spooky holiday. Pipe cleaner spiders are easy to make and are a great Halloween decoration.
Apple Stamps– Cut an apple in half and use some non-toxic paint to stamp a pattern onto paper you can use to wrap gifts or create a festive garland. Get creative with the colors and see what kinds of patterns emerge.
Construction Paper Pumpkin Ornaments– Nothing makes a home feel more like fall than pumpkin ornaments. But you don’t have to buy them when you can create your very own! A simple stack of construction paper and some yarn or ribbon are the perfect components for adorable pumpkin ornaments.
Hand Thanksgiving Turkeys- A classic autumn craft—the turkey made of paper hand cutouts is a Thanksgiving favorite. Kids will love tracing their tiny hands on the paper. You can even make these turkeys to paste onto greeting cards and give them out to family members when they come for Thanksgiving dinner.
As the leaves change color and the air starts to chill, encourage kids to show their creativity with seasonal crafts. The gift shop at Wiley’s Pharmacy is the perfect place to stock up on craft supplies like scissors, paper, markers, and glue, so you can get to crafting.
We also offer a wide assortment of seasonal gifts to accompany your craft. A ceramic mug or scented candle, for example, would make a perfect gift to go with a handmade card or ornament. Get into the spirit of the season and get creative while making memories the whole family will love.
