Autumnal Crafts

autumnal crafts

We are well into autumn and I have been doing some really easy and fun autumnal crafts with the children at home.

Here are three simple, and easy ideas that you could do with your little ones at home. Hopefully they are simple enough that you have the products lying around.

We have been so busy this month so I have not had any time to go out and buy any autumnal craft materials as such. So I was able to do these crafts with the children at home with what we had lying around and left over in our craft supplies.

1.Toilet Roll Bat’s

Autumnal Crafts

You will need:


Stick on eyes

Toilet roll




Here they are, I made a hole in the toilet roll and put the string through and tied a knot, as opposed to glueing it. You can use any glue, but I find the PVA paste glue easier as it dries clear and the glitter sticks to it well.

2. Autumnal Glitter Leaves

What you will need:

Leaves from your garden or local area



This is probably one of the easiest autumnal crafts we did this month. And most enjoyable as the children loved collecting the leaves on our family walks. Autumn leaves are so beautiful, I love the colours.

3. Autumnal Tree

This was actually Sophia’s idea. She wanted me to draw her a tree to decorate with leaves. So we did just that.

What you will need:




Colouring Pens

What autumnal crafts have you attempted with your little ones this month?

    Not that I am very good at crafts but this looks like a lot of fun although I think the kids would be better than me. Like all the sparkle too very seasonal.

    My daughter is forever collecting leaves (some rather lovely ones actually) so I love the third idea. At the moment, I’ve been telling her to leave them behind as we have a house full of pine cones and she’d bring those, sticks and who knows what else home, but even better to make them into something.

    Some good ideas there, I hadn’t thought of using glitterr on the leaves.

    What great ideas 🙂 I particularly love the bats! We collected done leaves the other day for a craft project may give one of these a go X

    Your ideas are so easy and achieveable. I’ve realised recently that I haven’t been doing enough crafts with DJ, he loves doing it but Baby L has been so demanding.

    Oh I love this, we’re surrounded by leaves at the moment so this is a fabulous way to get children involved in autumn!
