It’s officially October, and fall has arrived, bringing falling leaves, cooler temps, and all things pumpkin spice! It’s also the unofficial start to the holiday crafting season!

Whether you’re decorating for Halloween, making Thanksgiving crafts, or looking for Christmas crafts to get started, we’re all looking for fun ideas to make the seasons shine.

If you live in the U.S., then it's likely that the change in weather means that you’ve got children spending more time inside.

These kid-friendly AccuQuilt crafts are great for little hands because they use the GO! Fabric Cutter and dies.

The GO! system is the perfect crafting companion for kids because it’s not only safe, but it's easy to use and gives them perfectly cut pieces every time.

Plus, it's super fun! 

So, let's take a look at some crafts for your kids (or grandkids) to do at home.
