Five Hundred Free Fall Activities For Preschoolers

Classroom Ideas For Fall

Our Old Friend Fall

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out and as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” Stephen King, “Salem’s Lot”
 
 

Free Fall Activities

Sometimes the best quotes come from the most unusual sources. Be even though we hate to see the summer end, its end means new beginnings are just around the corner. Therefore, The Perpetual Preschool is ready to help embrace our “old friend” that we call Fall. Check out all of the activities below. Most importantly, you can add all of the free fall activities to your own curriculum collection.
