Fall Craft Challenge #5: Kid’s Craft or Activity

Welcome to Week 5 of the Falling for Crafts Challenge here at One Artsy Mama!
One Artsy Mama

You all continue to amaze me with your awesome ideas!  Thanks so much for sharing them with me and with each other.  Are you ready for a new challenge? 

This week’s theme is…a kids’ craft or activity.

It could be a game, a craft, a costume, a baking project…anything at all that is kid-friendly.
If you don’t have children of your own, or they’re all grown up, you can still play; just make something you could give to a child {like the treat bags featured below} or a grownup craft that is still appropriate for little hands to help with {you know, no power tools, nothing toxic…haha}.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

These pumpkin treat bags from Martha Stewart.com would make any kid {or grownup} smile!
This Tree of Thanks will help kids remember to be grateful as the holiday season approaches.
Yup.  A Mr. Potato Head pumpkin.  Enough said.
Simple flowerpots turn into Jack-O-Lantern Candy holders with just a little acrylic paint!
Ok, ok, I know I have to show self-control and not post ten thousand of my favorite kid craft photos, so I’ll stop here.  But if you want further inspiration, check out a few of these other links too; some are from Pinterest, others are recent posts of things Little Crafter and I have made and done:
Egg Carton Bats
Stained Glass Fall Leaf
Glitter Pumpkins
Monster Mirror
Fall Scavenger Hunt and Collage
No-Sew Pumpkins
Fall Tree Collage
Painted Pumpkins
Now it’s your turn!
Recreate one of these ideas or come up with your own kid-friendly craft/activity.  If you don’t have a blog, send me a photo via Facebook or email so I can see what you made.  If you do, post about your creation and link up here.  Please be sure to follow this blog and to add my button somewhere so others can see that you’re playing along and come join the party.

Can’t wait to see what you create!

    I love that pumpkin Mr. Potato Head,…too cute. Never mind Martha’s little treat pumpkins. That’s a great idea.
