Fall Activities for Preschoolers

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year—cool-weather, comfy sweaters, and beautiful colors.

It is the perfect time for kids to get outdoors and PLAY!

In our household, not a fall day slips past us without doing a fun outdoorsy activity or simple exploration, like this fall scavenger hunt we did last week.
