  6. 6. Craft: Paper Pumpkin Sculptures These simple pumpkins inspired by paper-chain dolls let kids create a string of festive faces. For the small trio shown here, download our template at familyfunmag.com/printables (scroll to October 2013). Accordion-fold an 18-inch by 5-inch piece of orange paper (tape two pieces together, if needed) into six 3-inch sections. Using the template, cut out the shape.

  8. 8. Craft: Owl Mania! Whooo’s the cutest fall decoration around? These winged creatures! More sweet than scary, they make a great tabletop centerpiece when perched on a branch. To assemble one, trim an inch from one end of a bathroom-tissue tube, fold in the top, and secure it with tape. Cut a cupcake liner into quarters, then trim away the flat sections, leaving just the ruffles. Use tacky glue to secure overlapping ruffled pieces to the tube. Cut eyes and a beak from card stock. (For the snowy owl, cut circles from a cupcake liner to back the eyes.) Add pupils and dots with marker. Glue the eyes and beak to the tube. For ruffled wings, cut sections from a liner and glue them to the back of the tube. For smooth wings, attach a curved half-circle of card stock instead. Bill Milne

Add white Good & Plenty candies for the eyes. Lucy Schaeffer
