These fall activities for kids are great for homeschooling or just for something fun to do to celebrate the beginning of autumn. From crafts to learning activities to games, there are so many fun ways to spend time with your kids this fall.
The theme for our first week of homeschool pre-k this year was fall. We had so much fun doing a lot of these crafts and activities to go along with our theme.
After deciding not to buy a school curriculum this year and trying to make my own, I was anxious about having enough resources to teach the kids. But I realized that all I had to do for a preschool curriculum was decide on a theme for each week and use the free tools and material available online to go with it.
