  • This post is great! I remember doing so many of these crafts in school and at home when I was little! It really brings back memories. I cant wait to do the arm print and finger print tree painting with my kids, and my favorite was always the Stained Glass Tissue paper Wreath:) I think my kids would like to do the pine cone turkey, and they would all make great gifts for grandparents, and other family members.

  • i LOVE the hand/arm print tree! so clever! i am having a halloween party for the kids in the family and the pumpkin or lanterns would be a great activity we could do. thank you so much for sharing!

  • I love the Turkey Pinecone and the Paper Pumpkin, I need to make some of those with my 3 year old for Harvest Decor! Thank you! 🙂

  • These are all so cute, but I like the Wreath, Paper Pumpkin & Scarecrow best. And I know these are for kids- but I’d make these myself. I guess I’m a Big Kid! : )

  • I love growing TickleMe Plant in the fall in the classroom. It is the one plant that makes everyone smile when they Tickle it!

  • Another fun fall idea is to grow a pet TickleMe Plant and watch how the leaves fold together like crazy when you Tickle it. Minutes later the leaves re-open.
    See video….It may change the way you look at plants forever!
