20 Fall Learning Activities for Preschoolers

Where we live in California it is so hot and dry right now and I am dreaming about the brisk cool weather that will hopefully arrive soon. I love doing learning activities and crafts with my preschooler while her older brother naps in the early afternoon. 

For the next week or two we will be sharing some Fall themed learning activities we've enjoyed. This post shares a few Fall themed learning activities that we have already tried out and we love!

This post shares some simple learning activities centered around simple preschool concepts like learning about numbers, the alphabet, hands-on science, shapes, and color activities.
