LITERACY: FALL BEGINNING SOUNDS
Collect a basket of fall items from around your home and neighborhood (leaves, pinecones, pumpkins, sticks, apples, etc.). Write the beginning sound letter for each object you collect on a sticky note. Stick the sticky notes on the ground and set the basket of items next to them. Ask your child to pick an item, identify the beginning sound, and match it to the correct letter.
MATH: COLOR LEAF SORT
Grab two sheets of paper and sketch a bare branch fall tree on both. Label each with a color (orange and yellow). Buy fake fall leaves in matching colors or cut out your own. Have your child sort the leaves by color and add them to the correct tree.
FINE MOTOR: STICKER CONNECT
For this one you’ll need a set of matching fall stickers (so each is a pair). Simply stick down two of each sticker on a sheet of paper – you can line them in two straight lines or even mix things up and place them around the page. The goal? Pick a sticker and find its match by drawing a line between both.
SENSORY: I SPY FALL BIN
Fill a large bin with a mix of fall colored beans. Toss in fall loose parts like fake leaves, pumpkins, acorns, pinecones, and apples. Create a simple “I Spy” sheet for your child to follow and search the bin for.

CRAFT: WATERCOLOR LEAVES
Use a Sharpie to sketch fall leaves on a sheet of paper. Give your child a set of watercolors and have them paint the leaves. Let them dry and cut them out. Tadaa! Beautiful fall leaves to decorate with.
SCIENCE: FALL NATURE TRAY
Go on a fall walk and collect things from nature. Add your collections to a tray and set it out with magnifying glasses, paper, and crayons. Explore the items on the tray, draw your observations, and talk about what you see.
