Fall Fun Activity Tree

Fall is a great time for making memories with your kids. You can feel the change in the air as season change. The falling leaves bring us a whole world of autumnal sensory experience. We also got all the lovely flavors of Fall – soups, apple cider, pumpkin pie!

What fun fall activities do you want to do with your kids this season?

DIY Fun Fall Activities Tree

Suppliers You'll Need:

  • Cardboard for the background and the tree trunk
  • Scissors for cutting out cardboard
  • Construction paper for the leaves or pre-cut paper leaves
  • Blu-tac or other poster hanging putty
  • Markers or crayons
  • Ideas for fun fall activities 😉

Steps for making your Activity Tree:

1. Color your background any way you like.

2. Draw a tree shape on one piece of cardboard and cut it out.  This can be as simple as a Y shape with a couple extra arms sticking out.  Glue your tree to the background.

3. Make a list of fall activities.  Here are a few to get you started and I have a list of 10 fun backyard fall activities here.

  • Harvest the garden
  • Plant bulbs
  • Pick pumpkins or apples
  • Play in leaves
  • Have a bon fire
  • Do a fall craft
  • Bake something
  • Make apple sauce
  • Have a picnic in the changing leaves.
  • Make Jack-O-Lanterns
  • Celebrate Thanksgiving
  • Make hot cocoa or hot apple cider
  • Read a book about the changing of the seasons

4. Cut out construction paper leaves. You can find a leaf template here if you like.

5. Write each activity on a leaf and stick the leaves to the tree with your blu-tac. You can also find some pictures of Fall activities here that you can use to cut out if you prefer.

Each time we do something we take off a leaf and stick it under the tree.

Leaves fall as you do each activity for this fun fall activity tree
