Fall crafts can be some of the most colorful and creative art projects for kids. Fall is the favorite season of many, as the cooler weather and changing of leaves are the perfect combination. If your child is anything like mine, they love fall. My toddler is fascinated with the magical yellowing leaves that fall off of trees without any rhyme or reason.

Fall crafts can also be educational as you can often incorporate a small science lesson in your art projects. The changes that happen to the environment are visual during the fall, thus they are easier to explain to younger children.
We have scoured the web to bring you a round-up of all of the best fall projects for toddlers that we could find. I hope you and your littles find some enjoyment out of the crafts!
