Play outside for an hour or so
Take a fall walk/hike (Put a piece of tape on each child’s wrist so that they can attach various leaves and sticks to it to make a fall bracelet.)
Sing: To the Tune of 5 little indians
1 little, 2 little, 3 little leaves
4 little, 5 little, 6 little leaves
7 little, 8 little, 9 little leaves
Blow them all away. Whoosh!

Clean up and nap time
While kids are sleeping make a fall feel box out of anything. We use what we have on hand. Put pinecones, leaves,apples, nuts and acorns inside.
