Autumn activities for toddlers

Autumn activities for toddlers

Do you love autumn? or are you already missing Summer? As much as I miss the summer weather already, I do love autumn too. One of the things I love about this time of year for inspiring autumn activities for toddlers. Children can explore the autumn colours, learn about nature and even have fun at Halloween. There are so many different options for fun and learning activities both indoors and out. This post is full of inspiration for activities so you can spend less time looking for inspiration on Pinterest and more time watching your child have lots of fun. I’ve split the activities into art/craft, sensory play (including play dough)  and everything else. The four photos in each collage relate to the first four links in clockwise order, starting from the top left. I hope you find something that your child will enjoy from this list.
