Can you believe it’s already autumn? I’ve been thinking of some ways to bring a fall kids activity into our homeschool this season and honestly, with Target right around the corner I couldn’t pass up some of their fall art supplies.
Supplies you’ll need for this fall kids activity.
I purchased a “Happy Fall” wall art decor set from Target and a Canson acrylic paper set. Why acrylic? No particular reason- we just liked the paper size and the sturdiness. So, the activity I’m having my daughter do this week will be a wall display.
My only agenda in this project is for her to enjoy thinking about fall, to have fun working with the craft fall pieces (like fall leaves), and to think on a scripture concept to tie it all together.
How I created the display:
My first step was to measure and draw out a line to separate a space for my verse.
Choose a scripture.
Next, I selected my scripture. I chose Psalm because it gives reference to seasons and how humankind waits upon God to give us our food (or harvest) in due season. Perfect for the fall theme!
I wrote out the scripture for her, then traced over in colored pencil.
Get the kids involved.
Because this is such a simple activity (peel and stick), I wanted to give my daughter a little more to do other than stick on the leaves and lettering- which she had a blast doing, by the way. So I let her enjoy giving some color pop to the scriptures for background.
Display your art!
The last thing we plan to do is display our art on a wall or frame and place on a table or counter.
This activity was fun, festive, and super easy to pull off.
I hope you find some fun fall activities to dig into this season with your kids. If you try an activity similar to this one, let me know how it turns out!
