  • fall wreaths are easy and fun. Just need leaves from outside, acorns and whatever fall things you can find. The other thing you need is paper plates. cut out the middle and then glue all the leaves and call items on the outside. You can also use silk leaves or cut out leaves from constructions paper if you don't have time to pick up leaves outside. Plus craft stores will have lots of fun fall items you can include in your wreath.

  • Dried apple faces

    Also leaf impressions: Just collect leaves that you like, place them beneath a piece of paper and rub a crayon held horizontally over the paper. You can use fall hues for the crayons. It will come out beautiful and anyone can do it. I did this with my nephew when he was three and my mother liked it so much she put it on coffee mugs and gave them as Christmas gifts.

  • im thinking made up crossword puzzles and word searches.

    also construction paper and pieces of already cut out pumpkin stems and pumpkin heads so the children can piece them together and glue it to the paper. or leaves drew out on paper and the children can paste on glitter, fuzzy balls and the such.

    idk...they never gave us crafty things to do in high school, it was all serious work work work lol

  • Leaf pictures - take a walk, collect a couple nice, almost completely dry leaves. Paste on construction paper however you want, add details and make it a picture. Leaves can be animals, people, houses, clouds: whatever your imagination can come up with. It's great with the really little ones who make a few scribbles and then spend 10 minutes explaining the whole story behind their picture.

  • Thankful tree/wreath writing things you (the students) are thankful for and adding leaves to your/their tree each day.

  • Cut different leaf patterns out of sponges and the kids sponge paint. Use fall color paints for them to dip the leaf sponges in.
