I suspect one or two of you may fall in love with these fabulous Fall crafts for kids (did you see what I did there?!)

There is, without doubt, a whiff of autumn in the air. The days of mellow fruitfulness and abundant harvest.

Autumn Crafts for Kids

We have already gathered blackberries, raspberries and plums and have a satisfying cupboard full of chutneys and preserves. There will be more recipes popping up on Thinly Spread over the next few weeks as we forage and gather in but today I wanted to share some autumnal crafty fun.

On a woodland walk recently we gathered pockets full of fir cones. We use a lot at Christmas for decorations but some of them seemed to be shouting at us in desperation; ‘Release me, I’m trapped‘ and ‘Help, this isn’t who I really am‘. How could we resist?

This is a squirrel, please admire his bushy tail ( a red squirrel, naturally)
