I love the fall season; such beautiful colors, smells, and who can forget all the amazing pumpkin, apple, and carmel things to eat. Fall is a great time to do some fine motor activities that you may not do the rest of the year. It is always fun to mix things up and do something unexpected with your kids during this season.
Today I have made a list of things that you will want to have on hand to complete any fall fine motor activity or craft with your kiddos. What is great is that a lot of these items you may already have in your home, or you can take a nature walk outside and collect a lot of them.
20 Items for Fall Fine Motor Activities
- Red, orange, & yellow food coloring (Dye-free option if you are avoiding dyes)
