Check out some of the best Autumn activity ideas for toddlers and preschoolers! From easy, low prep Fall activity ideas for kids, to full-on STEM science experiments that are Autumn-themed, this list has it all.
Who’s having fun this season? This year we were ahead of the game, and started celebrating the Autumn season all the way back in September, to really soak it all in.
Of course, we’re in Texas, so it feels more like there’s about a week or 2 of pretty colored leaves before they all die and fall off. It’s kind of dreary compared to some other places.
Regardless, we can feel the blistering heat going away for a while, and the days are much shorter. It’s amazing.
While we may be doing some of our school in the dark since the sun sets so early, my son isn’t complaining! Fall sensory bins, printables, slime, and Autumn STEM galore!
Here are some of my favorite Autumn activity ideas for toddlers and preschoolers.
