Fall Craft Round-up and some fun FREEBIES!

I love this time of year - there are so many cute crafts for students to make during the fall/autumn season!  Some of the following ideas in this fall craft round-up are general fall crafts and some are linked to the novel The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark {affiliate} - one of my all time favorite chapter novels for first grade.  If you are looking for some ideas - keep reading!

fall autumn craft pictures for first grade

1. CLOTHESPIN BATS 

I believe the idea originates from Enchanted Learning.  I do these at this time of year to tie in with 'Night Animals', as we have just begun our first novel study:  'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark.'  Obviously great for Halloween if you add fangs.  The wings are also super useful for bat vocabulary. Students love writing with messy chalk!




2. PAPERPLATE OWLS 

The paper plate owl has split pins to attach the wings, so they are movable.
 
   

3. PINWHEEL HEDGEHOG

This little cutie pie moves too!  Unfortunately we had to paint white card brown!  Note to self, brown card IS usable!  This one has wool for spines, but you can also use spaghetti, although it's slightly harder to glue!


Both of these are super simple to make and look very cute!  Click on the image below to grab the templates!


5. HAND/FOOT TURKEY

I love these turkeys for Thanksgiving (we made these for a bird project, as we don't have Thanksgiving):  This idea is from Enchanted Learning - click here for the template.


6. LEAF PEOPLE:

We also had great fun making these too!  If time permits, you can paint the cardboard tubes autumnal colors - they turned out really cute! Leaves, twigs, bark and googly eyes, plus tubes and glue - easy!
