Fall is almost upon us! At preschool, we are already seeing glimpses of fall. There is a chill in the morning air as moms drop off their children. We’ve noticed the green leaves turning to vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow. And probably one of the greatest tell-tale signs of fall around our preschool is all of the cute little acorns that are scattered on the ground. We love exploring acorns in preschool! Today I would like to share with you just a few ways we enjoy acorns…
Perhaps the most obvious thing we do with acorns is to pick them up and play with them. Collecting, counting, and using tweezers is all part of the fun in fine motor acorn play…
Once all of our acorns have been gathered, it’s fun to weigh and graph them with acorn math…
Of course we wouldn’t be fully exploring every aspect of acorns if we didn’t try a little acorn art…
With all of our leftover acorns, we create sensory shakers as a little souvenir to remember all of our acorn adventures…
Now it’s Your Turn! What Fall activities do you and your children love?
