Application on the theme “Autumn”. Autumn ideas from colored paper and natural materials for kindergarten and school children with templates

Hello! I was inspired by autumn applications and therefore here is a new selection of ideas. This is especially true for parents of children of kindergarten or school age.

This topic is also very interesting to me now, so I’ve collected it in my piggy bank. But before we get into the master classes and the ideas themselves, I want to express my gratitude.

I sincerely thank those artists who make the results of their creativity available to the public. I took some from social networks, links are in the photo. Of course, I don't wash them. I also thank the parents, whose wild imagination and sleepless nights allow us to save time and take a ready-made idea into implementation.

Let's start with simpler applications and move on to more complex ones. You will also find templates, diagrams and even coloring pages. Let's learn more about them.

I also invite you to view interesting ideas made from pine cones, such as hedgehogs, Autumn bouquets, crafts made from natural materials, creativity for children and applications from tree leaves.

Application on the theme “Autumn” for kindergarten, for children in middle and senior preparatory groups

So, my dears. Children love crafts and applications. Of course, preschool children are not very skilled yet. For example, they are still just learning to cut along the outline and color without going beyond the boundaries. However, I repeated almost all the ideas in this section with my 5-year-old child. Unfortunately, there were so many of them that I didn’t take pictures. Therefore, the photos were taken from the Internet.

I really like these ideas where you can use cotton swabs, cotton pads or pieces of sponge for drawing. For example, here is a tree with colored foliage.

We remember the peculiarity of children: they are still poor at using scissors and the cut out shapes may not turn out quite even and neat. It is precisely for such cases that this applique idea is suitable.

If the child is already good with his fingers, then you can stimulate fine motor skills by making such a tree. The photo below shows a detailed master class. I don’t give dimensions, and they are not needed, the idea itself is important.

It is better to glue paper blanks with PVA glue. It is considered one of the safest adhesive materials. Therefore, it is used in children's institutions.

Advice! It is better to make the strips on the “foliage” the same size, for example 1*5 cm. Then they will turn out neat.

We also made a similar application. The child really liked it. To depict autumn on a tree, you need to take paper from yellow to red shades. The barrel can be cut out of self-adhesive paper.

Advice! For this master class, select double-sided colored paper. Then the wrong white side will not stick out.

A ruler helped us fold the circles evenly. The child quickly understands this.

If it is difficult to cut out round leaves or there is no time for it. Then give your child cotton pads and paints. And let him paint these round pieces in autumn colors. This can be done with a pipette, brush, or by collecting colored water in a spoon. The pieces need to be glued after drying using the same PVA glue.

Advice! Tell your child that you can stack the discs one on top of the other and then the applique will turn out to be three-dimensional.

Below you can see a more refined idea. Instead of disks, ordinary cotton wool is used. And instead of the usual cardboard barrel, it was cut out of a sleeve. By the way, you will have to make the trunk yourself, because children usually do not have enough strength to cut such thick cardboard.

By showing your imagination, you and your child can learn the seasons at the same time. I use just this one idea, see below.

When we were children, we loved to draw with pastels. And then this idea caught my eye.

Pastels, by the way, are sold in most supermarkets in the stationery and creativity department.

The child takes a blank sheet of paper and draws any ornament by hand. Or you will already give him a printed template with a piece of paper. This is optional.

Take the desired pastel color and paint over the voids. You need to blend it with your fingers.

The next master class really helped us out for Easter. Yes! We took this idea as a basis, but replaced the leaf template with a rabbit. You can also come up with a craft for any holiday: New Year, March 8, February 23, and even Valentine's Day.

And everything is done simply. You need to take:

  • sheet A4,
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • multi-colored paper.

Or use a template like this.

On the second sheet you need to glue strips of colored paper. They can be the same size, or they can differ in length and width. Also, it should not be positioned horizontally, but vertically or diagonally.

This is what you get on the reverse side. On the other you have a drawing of a leaf.

And cut the blank along the contour.

This is how applications can turn out.

Here are the templates for them.

In this master class you can bring your own changes. For example, instead of stripes, make a chaotic tear-off composition. Instead of paper, use table napkins with designs.

That's not all, see what happens in other sections.

Volumetric applique “Autumn tree” made of paper

If your child loves to crumple paper, then he will probably like this master class. This process is one of the main ones in the proposed master class. And the blanks obtained in this way will help to make an autumn tree.

To make an autumn applique with a tree, we will prepare:

- colored paper;

- a sheet of cardboard;

- scissors with a simple pencil;

- glue.

First we will use brown paper. On it, with a simple pencil, draw a tree trunk with branches. Then we cut it out and glue it onto a sheet of white cardboard.

We will make all the other details for our applique from red, green, orange and yellow paper. First, prepare a rectangular piece of red paper and crumple it well.

Cut this crumpled rectangle into 2 wide strips.

We put them together and start cutting them into thin strips.

So we prepared a lot of red elements, which in our craft will become autumn foliage.

In a similar way, we make the same blanks from paper of other colors.

Mix them all together. This is how we combined all the autumn colors that will be used in this application.

Now we apply glue to the area on the cardboard where the tree crown should be. After this, we begin to glue multi-colored blanks, simply applying them and pressing down.

In this way we form the crown of an autumn tree.

We will design the lower part of the craft in the same way. Thin multi-colored strips glued here will symbolize fallen leaves. Our three-dimensional applique “Autumn Tree” as a craft on the theme “autumn” is ready.

Autumn applique for students in grades 1, 2, 3, 4 made of paper with templates

Well, now let's move on to more complex crafts. I’ll say right away that I took some from social networks, that’s why there’s a link there. If you're interested, type it into a search engine and look there. But here I have selected ones that are more suitable for schoolchildren.

For example, this application. It is quite complex and requires accuracy. However, a 4th grade student can definitely handle it.

Advice! Use double-sided paper.

I won’t describe the steps, everything can be seen in the picture. This template was used. Please note that the stem of the leaf is not cut off, but falls on the fold. This is fundamentally important.

Next is the master class “Autumn City” .

So, for houses you need to cut 7 roofs: 4 trapezoids and 3 triangles. Our houses will be in the form of rectangles of different sizes.

Place rectangles on the base and distribute them so that they do not completely cover each other. In other words, create a composition. After this, they can be fixed to the cardboard with glue. Then we put them on the upper sides of the roof and also fix them.

The leaves will be circles, which we will make with a hole punch from different shades. We also cut out tree crowns; they can be uneven in shape. And we finish the craft.

Use pieces of colored paper from which you made leaves with a hole punch. You can put together such a tree. Waste-free production is achieved.

The next craft is with a mouse.

Use this template.

Here's an idea for a fall harvest basket. Instead of paper, cotton pads, felt and foamiran are suitable for depicting fruits.

Here is a diagram for the blanks.

Do you want to laugh? Then it's time to sculpt such a positive acorn.

You need to take two sheets of paper: a brown shade and a yellow or orange one. We cut out two blanks. From a brown shade, a square with sides 6*6 cm. From yellow we make a rectangle 6*5 cm.

Fold the square in half and insert the short side of the rectangle into it. Glue them together.

Next, you need to give the bottom of the rectangle the shape of an acorn or bowl by cutting off the ends. We bend the edges of the brown workpiece on the wrong side.

We complete the remaining details with a felt-tip pen.

These are the beauties they turn out to be.

Next up are some cool umbrellas. This important element of autumn is reflected in applications.

Below is a step-by-step master class.

To make cones, it is convenient to first draw a circle with a compass. Cut it out. And then cut into 3-4 equal parts.

Leaflet templates can be used those presented in the lower sections of the article.

Based on this idea, such masterpieces are created.

And here is a voluminous idea with a maple leaf and umbrellas.

Advice! When you glue the umbrellas, go beyond the base.

This is the diagram that will come in handy for you.

Next in front of you is a cute dog with a romantic soul.

This is what the details look like.

Another voluminous idea in the form of a pumpkin. You've definitely done something like this before. There is absolutely nothing complicated here.

Cut out these parts. Place it on colored paper and trace it. You cut out the blanks or fix them on the base, as in the photo.

Advice! For pumpkin, choose several shades of orange, then it will turn out brighter.

Here is a version of an autumn umbrella with a squirrel.

It can be painted and covered with plasticine. Fill the white voids with cereals, berries or napkins.

You will also like the mushroom basket.

By the way, the mushroom itself can be anything: from saffron milk cap to fly agaric.

A dress for the beauty of autumn will not leave any girl indifferent.

Here's a diagram for the details. The skirt can be made from toilet paper or a napkin. Just fold it like an accordion and secure the top part of the workpiece together. You can see it in the photo.

Warm tea is sorely missed in autumn. Typically, these are herbal drinks with lemon, cinnamon and ginger. This is what inspires.

Take the diagram.

By the way, the mug can be made in a single color!

Open palms inspire confidence. We will also put autumn leaves on them.

Here is the palm template. You need two of them. One side is not cut off, but gets folded.

This is what it should look like on paper. The diagram of the maple leaf will be below.

The squirrel was amused. The work is painstaking, but very nice. I give it for inspiration.

Of course, the most important thing is that the squirrel turns out to be friendly and cheerful.

And then we add any design.

A voluminous basket with fly agaric mushrooms made of paper. They can also be repeated from felt or foamiran.

The leaves are folded like an accordion. Here's a sketch.

You can also take paper helpers. For example, bushings. Flatten them to make an oval. Dip the edge in paint and make imprints in the form of leaves.

Or use it completely in an application. The inside can be painted or filled with napkin balls.

Like here. Plasticine balls are also suitable for filling.

A little more children's creativity. Autumn spoils us with rain and clouds. This is what is shown below.

But nature itself is simply beautiful. Especially when the sun comes out. Therefore, we personify her in the form of a beautiful girl with an ornament of flowers, leaves and harvest.

To make the task easier for the child, part of the application can be drawn. And make some details voluminous.

The composition of the lower craft is interesting. The master made it against the background of a circle. And along the edge he let out branches and moss.

Older guys can repeat this beautiful idea.

Or this one.

Well, at the end of this section, I’ll show you some cool hedgehogs.

Take a sheet of paper. Fold it in half. In the upper part of the half we draw the face of a hedgehog.

Cut out the nose along the contour.

And we fold the rest of the sheet like an accordion.

Glue both ends together.

Decorate them as desired.

Making a paper pumpkin

It’s not at all difficult to make; even a kindergartener can handle the task. This is how they make a pumpkin.

  1. Take orange, yellow or green colored paper.
  2. We line it into strips. The width of each strip is 1-2 centimeters (depending on the expected size of the future pumpkin).
  3. The length of the stripes should be different. The first two stripes are the same length, the next two are 1 centimeter shorter, the next two are another 1 centimeter shorter, and so on.
  4. We begin to fasten two strips at a time. To do this, they need to be intertwined in the center and secured with glue or a stapler. Add to them the next two strips, fastened in the same way. Then two more, and so on, until the entire craft is assembled.
  5. On top of the finished pumpkin you can add a leaf cut out of green paper.

The result is a beautiful three-dimensional paper pumpkin.

Making an autumn tree

If you wish, you can even make a whole paper autumn grove.

  1. First you need to prepare the tree trunk. The best option for this is a toilet paper roll. Or - a tube rolled up from cardboard and glued around the edges.
  2. We cover the trunk with colored or white paper. If desired, add the missing strokes to it. For example, we paint it like a birch tree.
  3. Cut out a crown from cardboard.
  4. The first option is to paint it in different colors with paints. If it is an autumn tree, then it is yellow, red and brown, if it is a summer tree, then it is green.
  5. The second option is to take paper of different colors and tear it into small particles. Next, apply glue to the crown and glue pieces of paper onto it in random order. These will be the leaves.
  6. We make a cut on the sleeve (on the trunk) and insert the crown into it. If necessary, fix it with glue or adhesive tape.

That's it, the tree is ready. And if you make several trees, place them on some hill (a cardboard box is best for this purpose), place animals or birds made from cones, nuts or acorns between the trees, you will get a real, wonderful grove.

Another autumn tree

It is done a little differently, but the end result is a craft of amazing beauty.

  1. Cut out a trunk and branches from brown paper.
  2. Glue them onto a sheet of colored cardboard. The color can be any, the main thing is that the trunk does not get lost against its background.
  3. Take yellow, brown, orange, red and green paper and cut it into strips.
  4. Using glue, we make circles from the strips. These are the leaves of a paper tree.
  5. We make a tree crown from circles (leaves), gluing them on top of the trunk and branches.
  6. Cut out two green or yellow strips and glue them to the bottom of the tree. This is autumn grass. For a more autumnal mood, glue several circles to the grass. These are leaves that have fallen from a tree.

In addition, the video will tell you how to make autumn trees from paper. Here it is.

Making paper leaves

Well, it's quite simple.

  1. Draw a tree leaf on colored paper. Any: maple, oak, apple - whatever you like. Then we cut it out with scissors.
  2. Is it difficult or don’t you want to draw? It doesn’t matter: with the help of adults or on our own, we find the sheet on the Internet and print it on a color printer as many times as we like.

This video will tell you more about how to make maple leaves from paper.

Paper leaves are beautiful in themselves, and they can also be used to make a wonderful autumn garland. For it, the leaves need to be made colored on both sides, otherwise the garland will not turn out to be any beautiful.

This is how a garland is made. The leaves are attached in random order to a strong thread. They can be strung on a thread, glued, sewn - in general, whatever is more convenient. The more colorful leaves there are on the garland, the more beautiful the garland will be. It can decorate any room. Paper leaves, unlike real ones, are stored for a very long time.

Paper leaf templates

Autumn print

This activity is especially fascinating for children; they make crafts with pleasure, so you should definitely do it. Moreover, there is no difficulty here. On the contrary, everything is simple, bright, fun.

  1. We cover the table with paper or oilcloth, because we will have to deal with paints.
  2. We prepare real, large and durable autumn leaves. It’s better to use different trees, it will be more interesting.
  3. Apply a thick layer of gouache to any color you like on the sheet. We experiment with paints - this develops creativity in the child.
  4. Press the painted sheet onto colored or white paper. An imprint of the sheet will appear on the paper. It can be cut out (when the paint dries), or you can make several prints on one sheet. The end result is a beautiful autumn picture.
  5. The missing details on it are completed with felt-tip pens or paints.

Making an autumn rainbow

To make such a craft, you need to stock up on:

  • cardboard of various colors;
  • scissors;
  • glue stick;
  • cotton wool;
  • stapler.

Let's start making a rainbow.

  1. We cut seven strips from colored cardboard. Moreover, in a strictly defined order: red stripe, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. If the child does not understand the essence, he should be explained that this is the order in which the colors on a real rainbow are arranged.
  2. When cutting out strips, you should also take this point into account. The red stripe should be the largest, the orange one should be slightly smaller, the yellow one should be even smaller, and so on. The smallest should be the last, purple stripe.
  3. We arrange the stripes in the appropriate order, starting with red (top), continuing with orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and ending with purple (lowest). The stripes should not be even, but in the form of an arc.
  4. We fasten the strips together with a stapler.
  5. We make clouds from cotton wool and glue them to the sides of the rainbow.

A beautiful autumn rainbow is ready!

This is just a small part of autumn crafts made from colored paper. And there are an infinite number of them. Create!

Craft ideas made from colored paper

Volumetric ideas made from natural materials and tree leaves

Let's quickly run through this section and see how we can use nature's gifts.

Cereals, dried legumes and even pasta are suitable here.

To do this you need to draw a large picture. Apply PVA glue inside it, onto which you apply tightly to each other to fix the cereal.

Scales from pine cones will help you make a basket, and a hedgehog made from postcards will make the idea brighter.

Migratory birds have already created their wedges in the sky. So we will depict them from peas, buckwheat and seeds.

In autumn there is not enough warmth and sunshine, let’s make it ourselves.

The whole panel is made from pine cones and withered grass. Also use dried flowers.

The cones lend themselves well to coloring and are very similar to flower buds.

Another material for creativity can be pumpkin seeds.

They are applied to the drawing, fixed with PVA glue.

The seeds are also well painted with gouache. Only after this let them dry, otherwise the child will get all dirty.

Wheat harvests are also possible only in the fall. And they can also be depicted as seeds.

Pistachio shells will add texture and volume to the basket.

Next, let's look at rowan bunches. It is also well fixed with PVA glue. Just keep in mind that if you use fresh berries, they will begin to dry out after a couple of weeks. The berries will become smaller in volume and shrink.

You can lay out the fruits in a chaotic order or, conversely, tightly next to each other in even rows.

Or use bunches as accent elements.

But let’s look at rowan differently! Let's take it just for prints.

Don't have natural berries on hand? No problem, roll it out of napkins in red or bright orange shades. And stick it into the voids of this drawing. You can simply paint over the leaves and twigs.

Below are ideas for umbrellas we already know. But now their decorations are not paper, but real ones made of leaves, berries and dried flowers.

Next, I offer options for panels, for example, in the form of a woman.

Or a bouquet in a vase.

Below we will talk about what can be made from fallen tree leaves.

Lizard, lion and ballerinas - this is not the whole list of ideas. But they definitely deserve attention.

For ballerinas, take these diagrams.

And here is a selection of eagle owls. Just repeat the arrangement of the leaves as in the photo and you will succeed.

It is also easy to make applications from leaves in the form of fish.

The jackdaw is created from two maple leaves of different sizes.

Since we've moved on to birds, this bird will definitely win the work competition.

What else is there in autumn? Rain.

Even the leaves get wet from it.

The mushroom theme stands alone. Therefore, we make sure to make such gifts of the forest.

We looked at how we can use the material that nature provides. Below I will tell you what can be made from scrap materials.
