Welcome the cool fall weather with crafts to match the season!

While the weather outside isn’t exactly frightful, it’s also not always delightful when the wind and rain come your way as the fall season is now underway. Fall is also another great reason to decorate the house as you wait for the Halloween season to officially kick-off (I know it’s everywhere right now but still a little early to decorate…don’t you think?!). So why not bring the kids in and settle down for some fun arts and crafts that celebrate the season — it’s a great way to spend some quality time together, especially after school!

Personally, I love craft kits because you don’t have to worry about not having the one thing you need to complete the project so here’s a look at some great fall craft kits that you can keep on hand and make whenever the mood strikes you. Happy crafting!
