Fall will officially be here in a few weeks! It's a great time to start thinking about how to create a Fall invitation to Play. I hope you enjoy some of the fun Fall ideas that have been shared in our Daycare Spaces and Ideas Facebook Community.
Fall Invitations to Play
Leisha Harrelson of Gingerbread Play House created this Fabulous Fall Discovery Sensory Area in her space. Leisha says, "Our Discovery & Sensory area is filled with signs of autumn just waiting to be discovered and explored. Items are laid out to engage the 5 senses. There are edible pumpkin seeds, edible sunflower seeds, pine cones, acorns, scented fall candles, a pumpkin, golf tees to nail into the pumpkin, ceramic owls, a new scale, fall animals, a new microscope, a fun game about squirrels and acorns, black locust pods, and milkweed pods.
There are great books about fall animals, fall leaves, fall harvest, spiders, leaves, owls, fall weather, pumpkins and more! Can't wait for the children to be able to handle and explore the items tomorrow! Science, Math, Pre-literacy, Nature and Sensory activities are all blended together for wonderful learning fun. Children can weigh and record items. They can examine items under the microscope. They can explore the pumpkin from the outside-in...they can smell delightful scents of fall while eating sunflower and pumpkin seeds."
Tenika Bell of SonShine Christian Child Care created this fun Pumpkin Patch from Felt in her Dramatic Play Space!
Erica Payne of Erica's Educare Learning Center created an Apple Cafe, Orchard and Farmer's Market for some fun Fall Inspired Play.
Her orchard has apple picking, and leaf raking!
What a great assortment of fruits & veggies!

Apple Themed Letter Matching
I thought this "Apple Picking Tree" Melissa Sanabria-Rivera share of Play N Learn Daycare was so clever!
Megan Crary of Megan's Little Sprouts created these "A is for Apple" Activities for her kiddos! So much fun!
These 3-D Trees that Renee Vaheck made are so adorable! What a clever idea!
I think these Scrapbook paper Apple Collages Pam Waser's Kids made, turned out so cute. What a fun technique, great for scissor skills too!
These adorable Owls are from Valerie Weston of Giggle's Daycare- they made from Natural Objects found in the Backyard!
