Fall Wreath

Fall is in full swing and the leaves are so pretty this year! Today, I want to share an easy fall craft that will get you and your little one out of the house to enjoy the fall foliage!

Materials Used

  • Paper Plate
  • Scissors
  • Leaves
  • Glue
  • A Small Strip of Wax Paper

We started by going out to hunt of leaves that had fallen in our yard. You can go to a local park or really any safe location to find your leaves!

After we found our leaves, we put them on a paper towel and let them dry for several hours. After they were dry, I cut out the center of the paper plate.

Next, I helped my toddler glue the leaves onto the paper plate ring!

After the glue dried, I turned it over and taped on a tiny piece of wax paper. Ribbon would have worked better, but I couldn’t find any! The finished product is a cute little fall wreath!

Giraffe Headband

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been having some jungle animal themed fun during our homeschool preschool time. Today, we made an adorable giraffe headband!

**This post contains affiliate links. We may get a small commission, at no additional cost to you, for purchases made from our links.**

Materials Used

  • Yellow Construction Paper
  • Brown Construction Paper
  • A Stapler
  • Glue
  • Scissors

I started by cutting the yellow construction paper into four thick strips. I stapled three together and made the giraffe’s ossicones (horns) with the last strip. I cut giraffe spots from the brown paper.

Next, I had my toddler glue the spots onto the yellow paper.

To finish this adorable craft, I helped my toddler glue the ossicones on the back of the yellow paper. After that, I stabled the paper so that it would fit around her head. The whole craft took about 15 minutes. It involved a little more adult participation than most of what you’ll find on this blog, but my toddler loved running around the house in her giraffe headband.

Materials Used

  • Paper Plate
  • Yellow Paint
  • Brown Construction Paper
  • Yellow Construction Paper
  • A Paint Brush
  • Googly Eyes

I started by giving my toddler the paper plate to paint.

We let the paint dry overnight. Once it was dry, I helped my toddler cut strips from the brown construction paper. I cut ear like shapes from the yellow construction paper.

Once the paper was cut out, we glued it onto the back of the paper plate.

To finish this craft, we flipped it over and added googly eyes!
