The time of year has come once again where the days shorten, the leaves turn, and thoughts of the holiday season move to the forefront of everyone’s minds. It’s the perfect time to use this festive time of year to revel in the warm colors and aesthetic themes that come with the autumn season. One of the best ways to enjoy the changing of the seasons is by having your child with autism engage in fun fall-themed art projects. Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing.
This idea is especially fun around Thanksgiving, but your kids will no doubt have fun with it at any point in the fall. All you need for this project are pinecones, pieces of felt, feathers, and googly eyes. First, do some exploring with your child to find the perfect pinecones. You can make this adventure educational by discussing the pinecones of different types of trees. This first part of the project is a good way for your child with autism to get some beneficial outdoor time and physical activity. Once you have your pinecones, cut the felt into little triangles for the nose on your turkey. Then, attach the feathers on the back and glue the googly eyes to complete your silly little birds.
