This craft ties in nicely with learning about color mixing, parts of a tree or why leaves change colour.

Other Adorable Preschool Crafts for Fall
A pumpkin pinwheel – Make a craft, learn about motion and… optics? The nerd in me just loves these layers of learning. I saw your raised eyebrow when you read the title and saw the picture. Um, that’s a bit of stretch, Sarah – where’s the pumpkin? When you spin it, the pumpkin emerges! You’ll see!
Paper Plate Apples – Preschool crafts for fall don’t get much easier than this, folks! There are fun ways you can add to this craft if you have older kids. Weave in a sneaky worm, or cut some sides out to imitate a bitten apple!
Textured Owl Craft – This fall creation was quite literally a collaboration between my kiddos and I during an open-ended craft session. We were inspired in the moment and used what we had on hand. Create a similarly unique craft using whatever variety of materials you may have lying around, aiming for various textures. See what you can come up with. Maybe another textured owl? Or a hippo? Or a truck? Most importantly, remember to be present and have fun!
Don’t these fall crafts just fill you up with warm, cosy feelings? I tell you friends, memories are made in childhood with scissors and crayons in hand. Fall crafts for preschoolers are simply the best.
