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.
Autumn Activities for Toddlers
As there are so many ideas in this I’ve split this into two sections to make it easier to navigate – Autumn Crafts for Toddlers and Easy Autumn Activities for Toddlers. There’s tons of inspiration in both lists including autumn tree crafts, leaves, hedgehogs and apples.
I’ve called this post 40+ Autumn Activities for Toddlers as it currently contains 41 activities but I expect that the list will grow over the season as we add new ideas to it. To help you find the activities you want I’ve listed each section in the same order as they appear in the collages below. Want to make sure you don’t forget any of these fun ideas? Be sure to bookmark this page or pin an image so that you’ve got all these ideas to hand when you need them. Want more inspiration?
