Fall Leaves Activities

The first day of fall is only a few weeks away! It’s on September 23rd this year incase you were wondering.

With fall starting soon, my daughters and I will be creating a list of activities that we would like to do for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. I previously wrote about how we used ice cream scoops last year to show off our spring and summer activity wish list. My daughters and I enjoy creating these list of activities to do for the upcoming seasons twice a year (spring/summer and fall/winter).

Here is our ice cream cone and scoops from last year for our spring/summer list:

Our ice cream scoops didn’t reach quite as high this year, but we still kept busy with a lot of projects and fun activities.

I love the beautiful colors of fall leaves, so last year we displayed our fall activities on autumn-colored leaves. I used a leaf printable (found on First Palette here) and printed the leaves on orange, yellow, and red construction paper.

Then, my daughters and I cut them out and wrote one activity on each leaf.

If you would like to do more projects using fall leaves as a theme, you may be interested in 50 fall leaf themed activities, books, crafts, and snacks, which I compiled and had recently published on Hands On As We Grow.

We used painter’s tape to tape all of the leaves on a wall in our house. As we completed each activity, we moved it to another wall to form a wreath. It took a while before we could tell it was a wreath, but the end result turned out cute.

Since we did the activities for fall and winter at the same time, I also printed lights (found on A to Z Teacher Stuff here) on purple and blue construction paper. Most of the light activities were activities we knew we could complete in winter. As we completed those activities, they were also added to our activity wreath.

It’s neat to go through all of the activities together at the end of the season and reminisce on what we have done together.

What is your favorite fall or winter activity?
