Cinnamon Apple Pie Playdough: Mix 1 cup of water, 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil, 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup salt, 1 tbsp of cream of tarter, 1 tsp of apple pie spice, 1 tsp of cinnamon in a medium sauce pan. Stir the mixture over medium heat until it comes together, about 3-4 minutes. While stirring, add in red food coloring until you get your desired color. Once it turns into a ball shape, turn off the heat and let the dough cool to use.

Paper Plate Apple Craft: Cut out pieces of red paper. Glue onto the paper plate. Add stem and leaves with construction paper.

Pumpkin Stamp Banner: Grab an old toilet paper roll. Bend to make a pumpkin shape. Tape the top so it stays in this shape. Dip in orange paint and stamp onto a roll of white paper. Let dry. Fill in pumpkins with orange paint. Let dry. Use thumbprints to make stem with green paint. Let dry. Cut out pennant size triangles. Laminate and cut out. Hot glue onto ribbon and hang!
For this craft, just let the child paint abstractly. Then you can cut their abstract art into a shape (pumpkin above) or cut a stencil shape and frame their abstract art (apple above).
