We even started 60 days JUNK PLAY CHALLENGE where we used different medium from recycle bin each day! Autumn crafts for kids collected on this page are mostly simple and easy, but also fun and kids will enjoy while learning to turn trash into cool and fun objects and develop their creativity further!
Featured fall crafts on this page are aimed towards toddlers, preschoolers and school-age kids. Teachers can use these craft projects as an art school projects and parents can also enjoy in spending precious family time creating some fun and cheap crafts!

Simple Craft Projects from Popsicle Sticks
We know it’s easy to give in and just buy some craft sticks from a store. After all, there are all those awesome popsicle stick / craft stick crafts around the web! We have been that road too. 🙂 Our suggestion is, if you don’t have any popsicle sticks at hand, cut some sturdy cardboard, you already have laying around. And next summer season, don’t forget to make a stash of actual popsicle sticks! PS. It’s fun and really cool task for kids!

Paper Plates Make Fun Autumn Projects
Paper plate crafts are so easily adapted for different ages of children. For toddlers, prepare all in advance and turn it into a little craft kit. Preschoolers and older kids who can use scissors on their own can easily put together these crafts by themselves. Additional tip: If you don’t have any paper plates around, and wouldn’t want to purchase new set for crafts (something we encourage completely!), use a piece of sturdy cardboard box to create a flat plate, as most of these crafts can be created in this way!
