Sweeping Leaves

Emily shared her fall toddler activity idea - sweeping leaves.

Once again these craft leaves work great for this, but you could also set it up outside with real leaves too (use chalk instead of tape).

You can get a cute toddler size broom set HERE on Amazon.

Painting Fall Leaves

Another fun toddler Fall activity is to paint leaves. Elise shared her fall leaf painting with us.

I love how bright the colors are and how she displayed the finished work in a frame.

Emily also set up some leaf painting uses paper leaves (you can get sets like this ready to decorate).

By using a dropper (I LOVE this set) and watercolor paints it creates a really great effect.

Easy Fall tree collage craft

Nilofer shared this easy fall toddler activity idea - draw a simple tree and then used colored paper to create a collage.

When creating a collage with a toddler I recommend using a glue stick and then covering the whole picture with glue and then letting them stick on the paper.

As they get older they can try using the glue stick themselves.

Bubble Wrap Fall Leaf Painting

I love this toddler painting activity shared by Tylisha - using bubble wrap to paint.

Wrap your child's hand in bubble wrap and have them dip it in the paint and stamp it onto the leaves. It creates a great pattern.

You can get pre-cut leaves or make your own and I if you don't have bubble wrap you can get some easily on Amazon HERE.

Easy Fall Themed Sensory Bin

Sandy shared her fall sensory bin made with straw and some fall themed items she already had (pumpkins, craft leaves).

She also added some animals (not technically Fall themed but who cares - it makes it fun!)

Don't be afraid to let your toddler get a bit messy with their sensory bin. Placing a mat next to it so play can move onto the floor is a great idea.

Easy Apple Collage Craft for Toddlers

Michelle shared this fun and easy apple collage craft.

Simply cut out an apple shape and use red or green scrap paper to make a collage.

Remember that it's always easier with younger toddlers to put the glue all over the picture first and then all they need to do is stick the paper on.

Let your toddler rip up the paper themselves if they can, as this is a great fine motor activity.
