Love the crafts. Thanks for sharing!
Thankyou so much for including us in this list, so many ideas in here I have never seen and am looking forward to trying out with my girls!

Thanks Anna. It makes it so easy to pick crafts when you organise them like this. I’ve picked out a couple we’d like to try!

Oooh a great selection of Autumn play. Such a fabulous and inspirational season. Thank you so much for featuring our crafts 🙂
Really inspiring, thank you. And chocolate leaves – definitely the kind of craft project I’ll be inspiring. And I think being able to write spooky messages on chalkboard pumpkins is genius for Halloween.
What a wonderful selection!
Wonderful selection of activities!! Thank you! Will definitely share 🙂
Wow thanks for including my sensory harvest tub. I saw a awesome apple sensory tub over at pink and green mama. I am so jealous I didnt think of it first lol

This was a phenomenal post. I found myself inspired by all of the ideas and can’t wait to start using them (or variations of them) with my 15 month old daughter. I haven’t added an “art” component to my baby development program (you can read about the concepts at http://www.babydevelopmentnow.com ), but you have inspired me to start working on it. I think it’s a key component that I have missed. Thank you!
The Creative Connections for Kids link isn’t working for me? Sad day. I’m sure there are some great ideas in there!

Brilliant collection: i think there’ll be a few things here that will feature on my Inspired By post at the end of this month…..
thanks for including me too 😀
Thanks Anna; what a fantastic post, it’s got me all inspired about autumnal play. We’ve had loads of fun this week with some of the autumn ideas and still so many more ideas still to do! We loved doing the sparkly pumpkin last year so looking forward to doing that again this year.
Also congratulations on winning the MAD blog of the year award – your blog is fantastic, I recommend it to so many people, you thoroughly deserve the award – well done! Thanks for all the hard work you put into the blog sharing your ideas and hosting It’s Playtime. Ellie xx
