Fall Activities

Write an acrostic poem about Autumn. Start each line with a letter from the word "Autumn."

Word a Week
Choose one word a week that has to do with the fall season (harvest, pilgrims, cornucopia, acorns). Write it on a piece of paper and hang it on your refrigerator. Discuss its meaning. Try to use the word during dinner time. Add a new word each week, but don’t forget to continue using the previous weeks’ words.

What’s falling?
Go on a walk and look for signs of fall. Gather acorns, leaves, pinecones, etc. and put them in a bag. Bring back inside and talk about each item (colors, shape, texture, definition). If you collect more than one item of each (two leaves, two acorns), you can discuss similarities and differences between them.

Mr. Pumpkin Head
Materials: Pumpkin and Mr. Potato head pieces.

Using a medium sized pumpkin, poke some holes where the eyes, nose and mouth should be (include hat and ears). Let the children decorate "Mr. Pumpkin Head" using Mr. Potato Head pieces.

The Leaves Are Falling Down
(Sang to “The Farmer in the Dell”)

The leaves are falling down.
The leaves are falling down.
Red, yellow, green and brown.
The leaves are falling down.
