Fall is that time of year where the leaves are turning colors and the weather is turning colder. Which means sometimes we have to stay indoors. Here are 10 Toddler Friendly Fall Activities to keep your tots busy without breaking the bank.

1. Handprint Tree (from Mess For Less)

Trace your child’s arm and hand on a piece of brown construction paper and carefully dip your child’s finger in some orange, red, and yellow paint to dot around the hand to make the leaves. If your toddler doesn’t like to get his hands dirty or you would like to use other materials, you can use Q-Tips or Pom Poms to dip paint.

2. Leaf Collecting

Toddlers loves to sit and collect and explore their surroundings. Take your tots out to enjoy a nice cool day and collect leaves. Once you  have collected as many as they want, take them in and make a leaf collage by gluing leaves to paper or making pictures out of them.

3. Playdough Printing (from FamilyCorner.com)

Playdough has many uses and it’s great for when you’re stuck indoors. You can roller out the dough and press the good leaves that you collected into the dough. Lift it out and explore the print it left behind. Here are 10 Edible Play Dough Crafts from Mary-Ann and Kimberly at FamilyCorner.com.

4. Pumpkin Polishing (from Chasing Cheerios)
