Kids Fall Art Projects

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Thanksgiving is here, are you looking for some holiday decorations for your apartment in Mooresville, NC? Here are some great ideas that will let the kids create great projects using beautiful fall nature.

Leaf rubbing

What you will need:
Real leaves
Thick white paper
Crayons
Oil paints

Have your children position and reposition leaves under the paper while rubbing over the paper with force enough to make the leaf details appear on the paper. As they change colors and leaf types, a blanket of fall leaves emerges. The resulting artwork serves as an independent piece of art or as the background for a marker drawing, piece of writing or a collage.

Fall Wreath

What you will need:
Bag to collect things from nature
Paper plate
Scissor
Markers
Ribbons
Glue

Take your children on a nature walk, where they can collect various items — twigs, fall leaves, acorns and berries. Have them cut out the center of a paper plate and use fall-colored crayons to color the remaining circle. They can then glue the nature items they have collected onto their paper plates, creating a wreath. Further interest can be added to the wreath by attaching a decorative ribbon to the paper plate.
