3 Fun Fall Family Art Projects

It is Fall - the leaves are changing, the temperatures are going down, and we are spending more time in the house as a family. My family likes to put together puzzles, assemble giant Lego sets, and do art projects in the evening when we are all home together. 


3 Fun Fall Family Art Projects

1. Carve a Pumpkin

Since it is October we have a built in project that is always fun to do with family and friends. There are so many different ways to make your pumpkins unique. You can find inspiration with face clip art online, enlarge or reduce the design to fit your pumpkin, cut the design out, trace it onto the pumpkin, and carve. Last year we painted our pumpkins and were able to keep them all the way through November because they stayed fresh with no cuts. One year my whole family did 1 pumpkin together. We each took a turn drawing an element on the pumpkin using a dry erase marker and then my husband cut it out. It was one of our best pumpkins ever!

2. Make a Family Tree with Leaves.

Go for a walk as a family and find twigs and leaves that have fallen from the trees. Using paper cups and clay stand your twigs up. Start by writing the names of family members on each leaf. Make sure to get enough leaves for each of your siblings, parents, and grandparents (or more!). Punch a hole on the end of each leaf. Tie the leaves to the tree. The youngest generation goes at the top of the tree, the parents at the second level, and the grandparents at the bottom. This makes a great centerpiece for a family dinner or even for the kid's table at Thanksgiving.

4. Create with Doh Vinci.

Let your creativity show with these unique make-and-display art projects that just might get you hooked. Brought to you by the makers of Play-Doh modeling compound, Doh Vinci design kits let you decorate and personalize your project any way that you desire. It's super easy for everyone! Just use the innovative air-dry design compound and Styler tool to create dimensional designs with bold 3D lines. And unlike most paints or markers, don't worry if you make a mistake. With Doh Vinci you can just wipe off your design and try again! They have tons of kits to choose from including Holiday kits for when the kids are home this winter.


Doh Vinci joined us at Family Forward this summer and had an amazing workshop where families, friends, and neighbors worked together to create fun and easy art projects as a group. The sky was the limit when you use your imagination and Doh Vinci!
