Top 20 Autumn Crafts and Activities: for Toddlers and Preschoolers

September isn’t quite here yet but the autumn chill is already knocking at the door. My fingers are still crossed that we get a few more hot days, but I can’t deny that I am all excitement for the new season. I adore autumn. Yellow leaves, crunching sidewalks, crisp air, pumpkins; so divine. My children love to do crafts. In preparation for fall, I began my search for crafts and activities to prepare. Holy moly there are a tonne! After scrolling through a million different ideas (some intriguing, some useless) I decided to compile a list of my favorite autumn crafts. I have no intention of doing all of these (who has time for that?), but the ones I don’t do this year can be done the next.

Each craft or activity I have selected is simple, easy, and suited for toddlers or preschoolers. None of these will cost much money and most of the items you probably already have at home (or in your backyard). Here are 20 Autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving crafts for your little kiddos to enjoy!

I have to post this one just because I think it’s hilarious. If I end up doing it I’ll let you know. Otherwise, it looks messy (painted feet) and more work for me than anyone else; but I’ll leave it here anyways.
