Fall Activities

Namaste loves the season FALL! There are so many fun things to do when leaves start falling and pumpkins turn orange!

Pumpkin washing station! Children develop concentration, coordination, independence, and order with this multi-step work.

Choose a leaf from our leaf box. You can color it, cut it, and hang it on our bulletin board.

Fall theme cutting strips make learning to cut a fun activity.

Our sensory table is full of comfort food (not cooked, of course). Lentils, orzo, and split peas! Oh my! Can you find the hidden apples and leaves?

Use tweezers to pull out sunflower seeds from the sunflowers from our garden!

Pushpin a jack-o-lantern. Or a plain old pumpkin. You choose!
