4 fun and affordable fall and Halloween craft projects

Fall is here and Halloween is only a few weeks away. I love making art/craft projects with the kids. But I love using or re-purposing what we already have. 

Here are 4 of my favorite craft projects that fit the bill. 

1. As the leaves are turning beautiful colors and soon start to fall. Have the kids collect some leaves and make a leaf project with them.

2. I love any project that involves handprints. This is a great keepsake for your home or even pass on to a grandparent as a gift. It is Handprint Fall Trees. I have mine framed and we change it out each year to see how the kids have grown.

3. If you are looking for some Halloween decorations. Make Canned pumpkins and ghosts out of old soup cans. 

4. You can't go Trick or Treating without a pail or bag. How about making your own Halloween or Fall Festival Bucket with a plastic bucket and letting the kids decorate it. I bought plastic buckets at the end of summer clearance for 75% off, so that was a deal.
