Looking to get a little more creative? The DIYs below are a fun way to get creative while using resources you may already have at home!

  • Tree Art
    • First, draw out the base of a tree and its trunks onto a piece of paper.
    • Then, put as many colors of paint as you like onto a paper plate, piece of cardboard, or anything else you don’t mind getting paint on.
      • For ease and convenience, you can also use a pre-potted paint set, like this one found at Michaels. 
    • Finally, dip your finger into the paint and press it onto the bare tree trunks to create “leaves.”

  • Turkey Handprint
    • Start by tracing your hand on any type of paper.
    • Cut out the traced handprint and begin decorating it how you like!
    • You can use pipe cleaners as legs, paint to color the turkey, a pen to draw a face, and more. The possibilities are endless!

  • Painted Pumpkins
    • A classic DIY project is painting pumpkins!
    • All you need to do is pick out the pumpkin size of your choosing, grab some paint, and let your creativity flow!
    • For extra pizzazz, you can even add stickers, rhinestones, and more!


There you have it, a few simple and cost-effective activities to make this break unforgettable! Enjoy!
