Kids’ Crafts to Celebrate the Autumnal Equinox

Fall pumpkin

The autumnal equinox marks the start of a new season. Celebrate this day with a few fun-filled fall crafts for the kids!

Painted Pumpkins

It’s not exactly time to carve your Halloween jack o’lantern yet. That said, you can still decorate pumpkins as part of your autumn festivities. Get some finger paints out and let your young children cover the outside of the pumpkins with prints. Older kids can paint or stencil a design (such as fall leaves or the words “Welcome Fall”) onto the pumpkin.

Pumpkin Prints

Kids can create painted prints, using mini pumpkins. Buy a few of the smaller-sized pumpkins, and have the kids dip them into red, orange and yellow paint. Press the pumpkins down onto as piece of construction paper or card stock.

Colorful Leaves

The autumnal equinox happens before the leaves change from summer green into fall reds, oranges and yellows. That said, your child can still have fall leaves – even if it’s still September. The easiest way to change the color is with a thin layer of paint. Your child can use a brush or her own fingers to paint the leaves. Another option is to cover the leaves with modeling clay. Pull the clay into pieces, and spread it out (finger painting style) on the leaves.
