10 Toddler Friendly Fall Activities
November 4th, 2013 posted by Leah Blomberg
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)
Your toddlers will love polishing up their pumpkins and making them clean.
5. Fall Sensory Bin (1+1+1=1)
Sensory activities are great ways to get your toddlers to explore using their senses to learn about different textures.
6. Acorn Stained Glass Window (Toddler Approved)
This is so cute and your toddlers can do this with an Aaorn cut out, contact paper, and leaves.
7. Coffee Filter Stained Glass Pumpkins (I Can Teach My Child)
These pumpkins are very cute and easy to make.
8. Pumpkin Decorating
Provide small pumpkins and some markers or paint and let your child decorate them.
9. Pumpkin Bowling (Crystan & Co.)
All you need is a ball and some pumpkins for a fun fall game!
10. Fall Sensory Table (Sugar Aunts)
You can switch out some of these items that they have to turn it into a Fall.
