Here's a cute and quick little project that you can set out for the kids to do when things get a little hectic. Visit Krokotak to download, print, and fold these paper owls that can be colored or left plain. They'd be a great Halloween decoration or mobile too.
Papier mache bones are great for Halloween decorating but they'd also be good for a dinosaur-themed party too. Inner Child Fun shows you just how easy they are to make with the most basic of materials.
Fem Manuals shares these adorable squirrels made using papier mache over a paper cup armature. Add cardboard arms and legs, a pompom nose, and a fluffy feather for the tail and you have just about the cutest squirrels I've ever seen!
With a little cardboard, string, and a straw you can make this rocket climbing toy in a jiffy and your kids will think you're a genius! Homemade toys are the best and this tutorial at Pink Stripey Socks is an easy one to get started with.
Little ones will need to have a collaborator for this autumn string art, but that makes it a perfect project for side-by-side crafting. This would be a great addition to a leaf study or wall art to celebrate the season. Details are at Crafting Connections.
