Fall Activities For Toddler And Preschooler

For Small Hands

The fall season is fast approaching! Sooner the feel of summer will be gone and replaced by those crisp autumn leaves everywhere. My preschooler is now 41 months and just started attending a Montessori preschool part-time in the morning. She truly enjoys her new environment and a vast selection of practical life works. Since she started part-time at school, we normally do our homeschool in the afternoon after lunch, a perfect time for another uninterrupted activity. Some of her favorite activities include painting, cutting and pasting.

I gather all her fall activities including last year’s work when she was just two. Below you can find our fall and Halloween activities that are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers!

Yes! It’s almost fall season again and I can’t wait to share more of our recent Fall activities with my now four-year-old learner at home. At four, she’s drawn into artsy hands-on activities such as paintings and fun crafts. These activities are easy and perfect to accomplish whether at home or at school.
