I truly think that Autumn is my favourite month. The berry picking, the stunning colours, the fabulous nature finds like chestnuts and pinecones, the start of cosy evenings in front of the fire….ahhh bliss, I just love it all! To help us explore all the wonderful Autumn colours I have put together 20 fall art projects you must try!
I’m guessing that you’ve probably tired lots of fall art projects over the years and it can get to feel a bit same old, same old can’t it, especially if you’re working in a childcare setting and need fall art ideas for every day of the week! I hope that these fall art projects will get you excited to get out the red, orange and yellow paints and explore autumn colours in lots of new and exciting ways. You’re not going to want to miss a single one, they really are all so much fun!
Make this Autumn art season one to remember!
20 Fall Art Projects You Must Try
I’ve chosen all of these fall art projects because I think they all work well across the age ranges, are easy to set up and largely open ended.
Each fall art idea is numbered with a corresponding numbered image so you can get a feel for each one. When you’ve chosen which Fall art project you want to try out first, simply click the text link next to the number and it will take you straight to the full instructions.
The only problem is deciding which of these fall art projects to try out first, they all look so lovely!
