    Pumpkin Patch
  • Make pinecone bird feeders, simply by coating pinecones with peanut butter and covering them with bird seed. Hang them up outside near a window so you have the best view of the birds when they come to eat.
  • Stuff some old clothes with newspapers or straw to make a scarecrow for the front yard. You can either set it up in an outdoor chair, or make a stand for it out of PVC pipe. Don't forget to the straw hat!
  • Decorate pumpkins for Halloween or just for fall in general. You can either help your kids carve the pumpkins like a jack-o-lantern, keep them whole and paint them or glue on decorations  like acorns, sequins, leaves and glitter.
  • Decorate the house for the holidays. Make fall themed decorations together out of things you find in nature to go along with your Halloween or Thanksgiving decorations.
  • Make your own candles. First, melt down some old candles on the stove. Then, dip candle wicks into the wax and let it cool. Because your candle may be uneven at the bottom, make sure it’s well supported when you light it.
  • Make your leftover Thanksgiving turkey into sandwiches you can eat at a backyard picnic. If you have a fire pit in your yard, you can roast some marshmallows for s’mores once the picnic is over.
  • Take your kids to an apple orchard or pumpkin patch. They tend to have activities like corn mazes, hay rides and petting zoos throughout the fall season.
  • Pop popcorn and have a movie night. If you subscribe to streaming service like Netflix or Hulu, finding the perfect family movies is easier than ever.
  • Create apple-print pumpkins. Cut an apple in half. Dip it in orange paint and press it on to a sheet of paper. The result is a fun pumpkin shaped. Allow the paint to dry and paint on a jack-o'-lantern face
These are just a few of the zillions of ideas for fall crafts. As you can see, they're all quite affordable and are easy to accomplish. Let your kids get creative with you. You'll probably be amazed by what transpires.
