It's Playtime: Falling for Fall

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors on the trees, Halloween, and fall foods like pumpkin pie.  So this week on It's Playtime I'm paying homage to my favorite time of year by choosing activities I found creative, inspiring, and wonderfully FALL.  

Cutting can be a difficult skill for preschoolers to master, but is essential in fine motor development.  This great Fall Foliage activity from Toddler Approved combines cutting practice and process art for a colorful and fun masterpiece.  

I simply love sensory bins!  They are as unique and individual as the moms and teachers creating them.  This cute Down on the Farm Sensory Bin from Jada Roo Can Do combines wood pellets, farm toys, and fall themed items for scooping and sensory fun.  

Next to apples, my other favorite fall food is pumpkin.  I adore pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, and now, thanks to Dinosaurs and Octopuses, Pumpkin Pie Playdough.  Sure you may not want to eat it, but smelling it is enough for me!      

 If you have a toddler, fall is a wonderful season for exploring outdoors and trying new things.  Daisy Chains posted some wonderful Autumn Art and activities toddlers will love (tested and approved by her daughter).
