This is one issue of the fall crafts for kids to make. I will do more later.
Materials: Pine cone, Google eyes, Yellow and orange foam, small pom-poms, Chenille stems, and glue
Directions: Glue google eyes onto small pom-poms and let them dry. Help your kids fold chenille stems into legs and feet and glue them onto the pinecone. Cut out a triangular beak from orange or yellow foam. Glue on the eyes and the beak; let the creature dry completely before beginning a fun game of make-believe with your kids.
Materials: smooth rock, glue, acrylic paint, and newspaper to cover surface
Directions: Search your backyard or a neighborhood park for smooth rocks, choosing ones with flat surfaces so the mushrooms can stand upright. Have your child paint some rocks red (for the tops) and some white (for the stems). Add white dots to the red tops using paint or stickers. Glue the pieces together with liquid glue.
