Let’s get ready for Fall with these easy September crafts for kids.

As September rolls around, and the weather cools off a bit, everyone gets excited for the start of the fall season. Maybe it’s because we are over the heat of summer —or it could be because this month signals the beginning of a few months of very big and fun holidays. Either way, there is so much fun that comes in along with the fall.

The fall leaves begin popping up. Pumpkins begin showing up everywhere and Halloween costumes are being put up on the shelves in preparation for October.

Kids of all ages can enjoy all that comes with the month of September – including all of the fun activities. Pumpkin patches start opening up for the season and apple picking is at its best! If you are looking for some indoor activities to get children excited about the fall, art projects are perfect.
