Leaves are changing colors, school has started and the pumpkin spiced latte at Starbucks is back; clearly fall is here. This is the perfect time to create some wonderful seasonal crafts with your kids while making lasting memories at the same time. 

Little Pumpkin Handprints

This adorable pumpkin project from Frugal Fun 4 Boys is fun to do and gives you a wonderful keepsake to send to grandparents, aunts, uncles or friends. You can also use the same steps to put the handprint on a canvas giving you a nice fall decoration to hang up in your home. 

 


 

 

Halloween Canvas Keepsakes

Your little ghosts and goblins won’t be small forever. Create these memorable keepsakes on canvas by using your little one’s footprints for the witches and his/her tiny handprints for the ghosts. Then each Halloween you will have a fun decoration to hang up and reminisce about how much your child has grown.  http://www.pinnersandneedles.com/2012/10/04/h
