The leaves turn yellow, the morning air pinches the children’s cheeks, the smell of roasted peppers begins to spread between the blocks and it’s time for grandma’s cakes. Autumn is a magical time not only for adults, but also for children! So, why not take full advantage of the season by planning some fall activities for toddlers? These 14 fun autumn activities for little ones allow them to explore this special season while developing their creative talents, developing new skills and most importantly: having fun.
FACES FROM THE SHEET
Leaves are abundant this time of year and besides being eye candy, they are the perfect canvas for your child’s next doodle! With so many sizes, colours and textures to explore there are endless possibilities to make funny, silly or even serious faces on the sheet. Young children can learn about emotions through this hands-on fall activity inspired by nature.
PAINTING WITH CONES
If you’re already in the intro for the holidays, then this fun activity will help you and your toddler create custom artwork that can be saved for gifts later in the year. Allow your little one to explore nature, dabble in paint and have fun learning about colors and textures.
DRAWING OF A TURKEY WITH A FOOTPRINT
Making little footprints is so much fun! And best of all, it leaves you with a memory of how adorably tiny your child once was. The supplies you will need are child-safe paint and brush, feathers for applique, glue and scissors. Now let your imagination guide you and make your turkey!
Source: Fun Handprint Art
Picking apples with your mouth is a much-loved autumn activity for children (and adults too!). But, let’s face it, dunking your face in a cold bucket of water has never been less appealing. So reverse this tradition: give your toddler a ladle, spoon, or other utensil to use instead of their mouth. This game has a bonus: while it’s trying to scoop apples, it’ll also be working on its motor skills!
AUTUMN TREE WITH HANDPRINTS
This fall activity for kids lets the little ones get a little messy (so naturally they’ll love it!). Just unroll paper or even old holiday wrapping paper. Paint the trunk of the tree and then have your children make leaves with their painted hands and fingers. When your little artist is done, you’ll have a super fun picture for your wall.
