As the nights are getting darker earlier and the days are becoming chilly why not get creative with yellowmoon? They have a large selection of crafts available including many that are Autumn themed, based on leaves, hedgehogs and trees.
Yellowmoon sent us our termly parcel this month and within it was a few Autumn crafts. We received :
- Leaf stained Glass Effect Decoration Kits – Pack of 6 – £3.99
The leaf stained kits comes in 3 assorted coloured leaf cards – red, brown and green. Each kit contains the pre-cut leaf shapes, coloured ribbon to hang the leaves and coloured cellophane. Instructions are included and easy to follow. My boys who are 4 and 8 found this activity a little hard and needed a lot of assistance with cutting out the cellophane shapes to stick on. Each leaf card has shapes that are pre-cut already, they just need popping out. Glue is not included.
We loved the finished leaves, the colours are lovely and bright
The sun shining through the cellophane made a beautiful colourful shadow on our wall in the kitchen
- Squeezy flashing hedgehogs – Pack of 2 – £2.99
These cute little hedgehogs characters light up the early nights by giving them a little knock. They may not be in the normal Autumnal colours but they are Hedgehogs. They are bright and fun to play with, but also ideal for sensory play as they not only flash brightly but have a spiky feel to them. The pack contains four hedgehogs in an assortment of colours, each hedgehog is approx. 5 cm.
Watch them light up in your hands, as they are soft and stretchy you can squash them in your hands
They would make great little gifts in party bags
- Leafy Hedgehog Decoration Kits – Pack of 5 – £3.75
A fun Autumnal craft activity that both my boys enjoyed doing. Each kit includes 4 assorted hedgehog coloured foam templates, self adhesive foam shape pieces, wiggle eyes and ribbon to hang.
Once the boys had chosen the colour of hedgehog and leaves that they wanted they began to peel off the self adhesive shapes for the nose, feet and ears to stick them in place. Following the instructions that were included, they then started to stick down the leaves. The boys enjoyed this activity and concentrated hard on peeling off the backing on the stickers and sticking them down in the correct place.
This activity teaches children repetitive pattern and colour.
