3 EASY Halloween and Fall crafts!

This post has products provided by Oriental Trading. We thoroughly enjoyed the products and I would never recommend anything that we didn't love! All opinions are my own.

I love watching the joy in my kid's eyes when they are able to complete a craft themselves, with little to no help from adults. I love that I'm not pulled eight ways trying to help them all the entire way through.

Now that school has started, it's always fun to celebrate Fall and enjoy some family fun.

I've recently found 3 wonderful Fall crafts, that are all easy enough for preschoolers to do themselves!

#1- Fall Apple Magnets

What a great way to bring the apple fun inside! These self-stick, pre-cut, apples are as easy as peel and stick! The only glue necessary is for the magnet on the back.

These adorable owl ornaments are the perfect Fall colors. They are also self-stick. The eyes did require an adult's help for our 4 year old, because the backing was difficult to remove, but other than that the kids did them by themselves!

These beautiful ornaments were a little bit more difficult than the other two crafts, but it was still simple enough for our 6 year old son to do by himself (that's his above)! The instructions suggest using craft glue, but we had excellent success with a glue stick to glue the tissue paper to the clear plastic sheets. The spider/web is self-sticking, just peel the back off and stick on!

We had a lot of fun enjoying these projects... and I hope that you wil,l too!

The whirlwind of the end of Summer.

It's officially Autumn, as much as I hate to admit it. I don't know about you, but the beginning of the school year has my head still turning. We are still working on getting into a routine around here.

I hope things have been wonderful with my dedicated readers!

I've been working on a new photography venture, I started classes last March, and I'm finally getting to a point where I'm liking my photos. 

(Please note, these are low-resolution photos to deter people from taking them without permission)

During Labor Day weekend we visited the LOVELY Fayette, MI. Here's a photo of Snailshell Harbor!

And here's the furnaces from the ghost town of Fayette.

We've witnessed some amazing Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) this summer, too!

And some other beautiful things in the sky.

Our small, and close, adventures have kept the last few weeks thoroughly busy!

Another busy season is upon us, as the holidays roll in.
