  • 20 Fun Ideas That Won’t Break The Bank When the kids get home from school, make some of these fun and inexpensive crafts! Not ready to spend a fortune on supplies? We’ve come up with some fun projects you can make with recycled materials from around the house. Here are some ideas to get you started!
  • Bottle Pumpkin Kids will love putting these super easy pumpkins together. Make a whole bunch of them to decorate for a Halloween party or to set out on the porch!
  • Bug Village Here’s a great craft for almost NO money! All you need are a few sticks, some acorn tops, rocks, and imagination! These darling little critters have a home of their own in this cute craft.
  • Cardboard Tube Scarecrow This fun recycled craft made from a paper towel roll and scrap fabrics and felts is an adorable project for Fall. Gather the kids around, pull out the craft supplies and get cracking on your own scarecrows!
  • Coffee Filter Fall Tree Art Create pretty fall tree art with just a few materials and a fun coffee filter “painting” technique. Kids will have a blast making this project. It’s perfect for a blustery fall afternoon.
  • Coffee Filter Sunflowers Some of my favorite crafts are ones created with items that are often found around the house. This big, beautiful sunflower is a great example. All you need are coffee filters, crayons, scissors and a glue stick!
  • Craft Stick Fall Tree This simple craft is a great way to celebrate the coming of fall, even for the younger set. No patterns are required, just sticks, foam or felt and a little imagination.
  • Fall Crayon Craft I love a clearance rack. After every holiday, I am out hunting the bargains. In recent years, Halloween has emerged as the second largest retail holiday. That means lots of neat merchandise to amass and people are decorating earlier than ever. As I went through my Halloween boxes, I came across a ghost cake pan that was free with a purchase. Ghost cakes are adorable, albeit a little on the large side. But who needs cake when the trick-or-treat candy is so plentiful? So I decided I needed a new idea to use the ghost cake pan.
  • Fall Leaves Shirt This adorable shirt can be made for either a boy or a girl. So colorful and vibrant they are definitely going to love it! Go even further and add their name for a personalized touch. Make one today!
  • Feeding Station For Birds – Make this Feeding Station for Birds out of recycled plastic pop bottles. And don’t miss the simple pine cone feeder for the little ones to make.
  • Football Star Shirt Is your child a budding football star? Maybe you have big football fans in your family? This shirt is an ideal gift and a really fun project for game day. Whether a fan or a player, your kids will love it!
  • Furry Head Pencils – Terri of brings us this great craft. Watch ’em wiggle when you write! Makes a great party favor.
  • Memory Collage – We all want to teach our children that it’s not the material things in life that are important, but it’s not always an easy lesson. One way we can begin to teach this is to focus on family memories in the making of a collage.
  • Paper Bag Tree Grab a brown paper lunch bag and some Autumn colored tissue paper to make this easy and fun tree that appears to be blowing in the wind. A fun craft to make with your children this Fall season.
  • Personalized Pencil Case Personalize a pencil case for a cool back-to-school accessory. Super easy for kids of any age, get your kids started on this fun project today.
  • Plastic Cup Crow So many scarecrow crafts, but what about the crows? As autumn rolls in and farmers work on their harvest, the crows will be looking for free goodies. Make this cute little crow to celebrate fall!
  • Salt Dough Football It’s football season! Here’s a fun craft to keep your kids busy during the game. Make this fun mini football into a magnet for the fridge or even a good luck charm for watching the game!
  • Salt Dough Pumpkin Patch Salt dough is a great medium for fun and creative crafting. Take this sparkly pumpkin patch for instance! Salt dough recipes aren’t just for kids. Make these fun and festive pumpkins this Fall for your holiday decorating.
  • School Days Pin – These crafts are easy to make and are ideal for back to school.
