Autumn is a truly beautiful time of the year and today I’m sharing loads of great ideas to help you celebrate the change in seasons with this round up of autumn activities for toddlers. With tons of ideas including sensory play, crafts and process art there’s loads of inspiratiom to keep you busy and most importantly having lots of fun together.
Black glue is a really fun material to play with and this easy black glue autumn tree craft is a great way to use it to create a fun autumn craft that shows off the colours of the season and using watercolours means you get a great effect seeing the colours mix.
With the summer holidays now upon us I thought it would be a good idea to share some ideas of things to do with your preschooler for free. If you have a preschooler you’ll know how the holidays suddenly mean that your go to places are either closed (parent and child groups, children’s centre) or absolutely rammed full of ‘big kids’ (oh my days have you been to soft play in the holidays? It’s carnage!) Having two kids myself – one preschooler and one school age I’m sure that most of these activities are suitable for older kids too and there’s enough suggestions that you should be able to find a few ideas no matter what the age of your kids or what they are into.
The build up to having a beautiful new born is just so exciting; the progression of the bump, the scans and decorating the baby’s nursery. If you have no idea whether you are going to be having a beautiful boy or a pretty little girl, then thinking about how to decorate the new bedroom could be a little daunting.
We often seem to get leftover balloons from parties or whatever so getting a second use out them as with this balloon printed apple craft is a great idea. It’s a great activity for preschoolers or even toddlers too as it doesn’t require much in the way of skill and using a balloon to print with is a fun alternative to a normal paintbrush.
