60 Easy and Cheap Fall Crafts Ideas for the Whole Family

When autumn sets in and the warm weather starts to turn brisk, kids start to spend more time indoors. It may be too chilly or rainy to play outside, but that doesn’t mean that kids aren’t full of energy and searching for things to occupy their time. Doing craft projects as a family serves the double purpose of keeping little hands busy and out of mischief while also providing adorable decor for the coming months.

Spending this time together is invaluable. It will give not only memories of fun times gathered around the table creating but also keepsakes that you can look back on fondly for years to come. Every home needs an autumn centerpiece or wreath for the front door to help welcome the new season. And they are that much better when they are homemade.

I know some people hear “craft time” and think “chaos,” but craft time doesn’t have to be a massive ordeal with expensive materials or a big mess at the end. There are plenty of awesome fall-themed crafts that can be made with things most of us have lying around the house or stashed in our craft drawers. So here is a whole bushel of fun, autumn-themed craft ideas that you can easily accomplish in an afternoon with very little fuss. And any one of them would make an excellent addition to your home’s fall decor or as a gift for grandparents.
