We have a few fun Thanksgiving/Fall themed activities we are working on for you but I wanted to share a few fun ones I've found.
Make a teepee (perfect for LEGO minifigs ;) from Kaboose
I love these gourd turkeys from All You
This kids Thanksgiving table set up is so perfect! - from Fiskars
We are big Disney fans around here. Since I was a kid I've loved Disney. I am also really loving the new Disney site Spoonful. It's an inspiration site for crafts, food, activities etc. They have some REALLY fun Disney crafts and printables. Have you discovered it yet?
We've also been playing the free Fix-It Felix Jr game on the iPad. Yes I said "we" the game is fun!

We are definitely fan of the paper airplane here. We've done Strawplanes, oversized planes, and dragon planes. Well here's a new one to try - catapult plane from Minieco that they saw in The Usborne Big Book of Science Things to Make and Do. Add a rubberband (and some tape or cardboard for stability to the bottom of your plane) and see how it affects your launch!
Let me know how it goes if you try it out soon!
I'm over at Modern Parents Messy Kids today showing you how to make an easy outdoor Halloween garland. Weatherproof and homemade - awesome!
Have you ever had an idea you thought made you so smart and then discovered you weren't the first one to have that idea? That's what happened with these for me lol! I had been wanting to do these for a while and about a week ago I was flipping through a magazine at the store (Family Fun maybe?) and saw the same thing - of course executed cuter for a magazine. Oh well, not going to stop me from sharing it with you!
You'll need ping pong (table tennis) balls, LED tealights (the cheapest I found them was at Walmart 6 for $2.50 regular price or you could get a 12 pack at Michaels or Joan with your weekly coupon), a small knife for the parents, and whatever materials you'd like to decorate them with.
Start by cutting an "x" on the bottom of the ping pong and sticking the fake flame of the tealight through the x. This will let your child know right where to draw the eye.
Next just decorate! You could get creative and make eyebrows, eyelashes, a body etc but my boys just wanted eyes. And wanted none of them to match. Whatever floats their boat!
They loved finding places to stick them. Most were on the mantle.
Linking up with the Eighteen25 Halloween Link Up Party
Does anyone else have kids on Fall break right now? We've never had a Fall break until this year and it's been a little strange. We've had 3 days off but haven't really done much or gotten anything done. We've been all over the place. Here are a couple things on our to do list:
LEGO pencil holder from Handmade Charlotte
DIY Marble Ramp from Ambrosia Creative
DIY Cardboard bed also from Ambrosia Creative (my 8 year old still loves his stuffed animals)
and spider webs from Small for Big
But for now we're headed outside to run/walk/jump some of their energy out.
We have a craft to share tomorrow but I wanted to share some I've seen for younger kiddos too.
First I think this Carve-a-pumpkin app is fun for all ages
Who doesn't love stepping in paint to make these ghost footprint plaques (or you could just do it on paper) from 2pawsdesigns
A Halloween sensory bin from Nuturing Naters
They could make their own blocky Frank, Ghost, Pumpkin, Bat from Roberts Crafts
Love this little felt Autumn tree (especially because we don't have them here) from rajovilla
Or these little felt mix and match pumpkins from Mer Mag
Do you have a Halloween/Fall craft or a favorite craft for younger kids?
