Autumn Necklace: Easy Kids’ Craft for Fall

This is one of my favorite crafts because it is inexpensive, easy to do and not messy at all! It is a great way to bring the family together when you need a low stress activity that will please everyone or a group activity for a classroom or party.

 

Depending on the ages and capabilities of the children doing the activity, you may want to let them cut the straws and punch the holes in the leaves, or you may want to have these steps already completed so they just do the designing and stringing.

 

Supplies:
