Halloween has passed and the weather is starting to cool. Fall is here. Ashton Pointe, apartments in Beaufort, SC has some great ideas for art projects to do with the kids this fall. Decorate your apartment homes and entry doors with some of these great ideas.
Leaf rubbing - What you will need:
Thick white paper
Have your children position and reposition leaves under the paper while rubbing over the paper with force enough to make the leaf details appear on the paper. As they change colors and leaf types, a blanket of fall leaves emerges. The resulting artwork serves as an independent piece of art or as the background for a marker drawing, piece of writing or a collage.
Fall Wreath - What you will need:
Bag to collect things from nature
Take your children on a nature walk, where they can collect various items — twigs, leaves, acorns and berries. There are gorgeous places to walk in and around Beaufort. Have them cut out the center of a paper plate and use fall-colored crayons to color the remaining circle. They can then glue the nature items they have collected onto their paper plates, creating a wreath. Decorate the wreath further by attaching a decorative ribbon or sea shells to the paper plate as well.
Lady bug pumpkin - What you will need:
1 small pumpkin
Red spray paint
2 large googely eyes
2 black pipe cleaners
25 mini black pom-poms
2 mini red pom-poms
Black magic marker
Place your pumpkin on top of the newspaper. Help your child spray paint the whole pumpkin red. Let it dry. Glue on the eyes and pom-poms. Draw a mouth and wrap the black pipe cleaners around the stem (attach two of the red pom-poms with glue to the end of the black pipe cleaners). All done. Easy and adorable!
We can’t wait to see your creations around Ashton Pointe.
