FALL LOOSE PARTS PLAY IDEAS
Easy, simple and fun – and great for their development. Here’s a small list of fall loose parts play ideas you can try this season!
Fall is one of those seasons I love to romanticize and forget the realities of. While fall brings cooler weather and beautiful walks it also brings a lot of rain and mud for us!
Loose parts play is a great activity option for kids. Loose parts play usually has an easy setup, fast cleanup and is a great playing option when you have various ages to entertain and teach. You can use materials easily found around your house, in nature or at the store so it’ll fit into any household budget.
I’m a sucker for themed play invitation so here is a collection of fall loose parts play ideas we have done and loved!
EXPLORING FALL COLOURS
Fall is full of beautiful colours. To throw this one together, I went down into the storage room and pulled out a bowls worth of anything red, yellow and orange we had. Plastic lids, plastic animals… Making sure there was a variety in shapes and textures. Then added some fall flair with our fake leaves and the potpourri.
They mainly made fall bits and bobs soup in their flower pots, then dumped them out and started over. But it allowed us to practice skills such as colour identification, shape identification, stacking, racking and more.
