Pediatric Home Health Care near Great Neck, NY – Fun Fall Activities for Kids of All Ages
Who can believe summer is coming to an end? No one wants it to, that’s for sure! Fall can be quite lovely though, and there are many fun arts and crafts to do. Here is a great list for you to choose from:
- Take pictures of each child in an orange outfit surrounded by a bunch of large pumpkins
- Go to a local orchard and pick apples. Bring them home and make applesauce
- Read a book together about fall or apples or pumpkins
- Make up a batch of caramel apples together
- Use corks and some red, orange and yellow paint to make fall trees. Draw a tree trunk and paint it brown. Let children dip a cork into one of the colors and dab it on the tree. Keep repeating with all the colors until they have a tree full of colorful fall “leaves”.
- Gather leaves outside of all colors, shapes and sizes. Get a white gel pen for each child and let them draw pictures on the leaves. Glue onto a piece of cardstock and put up on the wall to enjoy.
- Make a 3D apple tree to decorate your house. Get a large empty vase, gather some tree branches and place standing up in the vase. Let all the children cut leaves from colored paper and attach to the tree branches. Let them cut red apples to put on the apple tree.
- Go out walking in the leaves in the park and sit in them and play. Throw them in the air and take some pictures.
- For your child with special needs, include him in all the activities as much as possible. For activities outside, bring his home health caregiver along to watch over him while you organize the activity and all your children making sure they all get turns.
- Make an autumn leaves booklet. Gather leaves, paste them in a book and identify the type of tree they came from. Have each child write the name of the tree and some of its characteristics
- Make some homemade play dough and use it to make all sorts of fun creations. Make in a variety of different colors and store in Ziploc bags.
Colored Play dough recipe
