With the leaves changing colour and the days getting shorter it’s the perfect time to share some easy fall crafts for toddlers that are perfect to make on those days when you just want to stay inside!

All of the fall crafts for toddlers that I’m sharing with you today appear in the same order that they appear in the collages below to make it a bit easier for you to find some new ideas. There are more crafts than are shown in the collages though so do take a good look through the list and see if you can find something new to try out. You’ll also find more ideas for themed toddler crafts at the end of this post.
As with all activities for toddlers you will need to supervise your child during these crafts and obviously there is a lot of differences between what different children can do at different ages – the toddler years are ones of massive change and development! Go with what you think your child will enjoy and most importantly have fun!
Fall Books for Toddlers
I am a huge fan of reading with my kids – I think all parents are, after who wouldn’t want an excuse to cuddle up together especially in this cooler weather! My children have always been fans of themed books – we love Christmas books during December and Halloween books in October! These fall books for toddlers would be great to share together for a bit of rest and chill out time once you’ve finished your crafting for the day.
