Whether you’re homeschooling or your family has to social distance in your apartment, now is the perfect time to bond with your child. Crafts are the perfect way to keep your child focused during the day, spend quality time with one another and get in the festive spirit with economic, hand-made decorations. You can find everything you need for these easy creations at your local craft stores! (please anchor text down to the last section)
Fun Fall Crafts
It doesn’t have to be a holiday to make fun fall decorations and crafts. Try making these easy activities with your child:
Mum in the Madhouse has come up with this super easy and downright adorable Hedgehog Pinecone Craft. The best part, if you can’t collect pinecones, local stores will have them available for purchase, bringing the fall spirit down to Florida.
Want a cute decoration that easy to make and useful? Try making this Easy Peasy and Fun Scarecrow Mason Jar! Not only will you have a cute creation on your counter, but you can also use this to toss coins from pockets when you do the laundry or even as a little vase for sunflowers.
Used up the toilet paper? Instead of throwing out the rolls, Easy Peasy and Fun has a much better use: make them into friendly little foxes. All you need for this craft is toilet paper rolls, colored paper, scissors, glue and a marker.
Hand-Made Halloween Decorations
If you need Halloween decorations, then be sure to make some with your child! They’ll love making these kooky monsters and spooky crafts for all the neighbors to see when it’s time to trick-or-treat!
A great decoration you can make with your child is a Monster Mobile from Happy Hooligans. Your child can be as silly and creative as they want with this craft and will feel a sense of pride when you hang it on your balcony, patio or outside your door for the neighbors to admire.
Will your child be social distancing for Halloween this year? Keep the holiday fun going with these Paper Bag Monster Puppets by I Heart Crafty Things. Have a Halloween puppet play or chase each other around the apartment with your monsters. The possibilities are limited only to your child’s imagination.
Brighten your Halloween night with Glow Stick Broomsticks by One Little Project. Your child will have so much fun “flying” these around the apartment. If you know other kids in your apartment community, you can even make these to handout instead of candy for a fun and safer trick or treating option.
Are you going to be handing out goodies to trick-or-treaters this year? Then, be sure to put out a purple pumpkin! This is the universal symbol of “Trick-or-Treaters Welcome” during this Covid-Halloween. Take this opportunity to make your purple pumpkin a painting or jack-o-lantern craft.
Totally Cute Thanksgiving Crafts
Many parents love having crafts for their kids to do on Thanksgiving because it keeps them occupied while the adults cook in the kitchen. Try having these at your craft table this year, or make them ahead of time to have fun decorations around your apartment.
Need a door decoration for Thanksgiving? A wreath is always a good option. But a better option is one that your kids make. Hang this cute and festive Turkey Wreath by I Heart Crafty Things to spread the Thankful Spirit of the holiday.
The patio or balcony of your garden community apartment wouldn’t be complete without a little decoration for the neighbors to see. These colorful Turkey Windsocks by Happiness is Homemade are just the ticket to give your outdoor space a flair of fun!
An adorable an soft Thanksgiving craft that you can use for years to come is this Sock Turkey by Christian Games and Crafts. Super easy to make, your child will be so proud of their little sock turkey, so be sure to put it on display!
