Fun Fall Activities That Are Super Easy To Do

Fall is one of my favorite times of year and now that I am a mom I feel like I love it even more. There are so many fun things about fall. In celebration of the fall season, I am sharing some easy fall crafts that any mom can do with a toddler or preschooler.

Fall Wreath

We had the best time making this fall wreath. So much so, that we ended up making three!

Supplies Needed:

Paper Plates

Scissors

Small Package of Fall Leaves (We used one package for all three wreaths)

Glue (We found that white glue worked best)

Paintbrush (Optional but it helps little ones spread the glue evenly)

Prep:

Cut out the center of the paper plate for your child. If you have older children that you want to include, they should be able to do this on their own.

Open the leaves and set them out, along with the glue and paintbrush. When my son was younger, I used to set out the glue in an egg carton “cup”. Now, he is able to squeeze the glue himself which is good for building fine motor skills. But if you have a younger toddler, you may want to set out the glue in a shallow cup/bowl and let your child dip the paint brush in.

Play:

Let your toddler or preschooler cover the plate wreath with glue and start putting on the leaves. Talk about the different colors of leaves and how they fall off the trees. You can also incorporate counting and the shape of the wreath!

Fall Shapes Tree

This is a really easy activity for toddlers and preschoolers that celebrates fall and teaches shapes and colors.

Supplies Needed:

Fall leaf colored construction paper (red, orange, yellow, green, etc.)

Brown construction paper

White copy or construction paper

Scissors

Glue stick

Prep:

Cut out various shapes in the different fall leaf colors. Cut out a brown rectangle for the “trunk”.

Set out out the shapes, glue and white paper for your toddler or preschooler.

Play:

Assist your child with the placement of the rectangle “trunk”, then let him place the shapes on the “tree”. This is also a great time to talk about the different fall colors and, of course, shapes!

Fall Q-Tip Tree

This is the easiest of the activities but it does involve paint!

Supplies Needed:

Brown construction paper

White copy or construction paper

Scissors

Glue stick

Q-tips

Fall Colored Paint (Red, Orange, Yellow, etc.)

Prep:

Cut out a brown tree “trunk”.

Set out out the white paper with tree “trunk”, paint and Q-tips.

Play:

Assist your child with the placement of the brown tree “trunk”, then let her use the Q-tips to put “leaves” on the tree. (You may also choose to let your child use his fingerprint.) Talk about the colors and you can also count the “leaves”.
