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.
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.
Whether it’s for autumn, Halloween or a farm topic scarecrow crafts for preschool are great fun to share with kids, it doesn’t matter if they look less than perfect (that’s the point of a scarecrow, right?!) and there’s lots of scarecrow songs and scarecrow books for kids that you can share too!
With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon I thought it might be nice to share some gratitude activities for kids. I know that I try and remind my kids how much they have to be thankful for (and remind myself too!) but sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in things and forget, plus anything that encourages gratitude has got to be a good thing, right?! Some of these gratitude activities for kids are specific for Thanksgiving with turkey crafts and pumpkin pies while other thankfulness activities are ones that you could use all year round. If you are getting ready for Thanksgiving then make sure you also check out our Thanksgiving crafts for kids at the end of this post!
