I’m looking forward to fall finally making an appearance . . . the leaves changing, the cooler air, etc. I can easily say that fall is my favorite season! In honor of the change in seasons, I’ve put together some fall crafts and ideas to try with the kids in your life. I always associate owls with fall (probably because they’re so prevalent in fall decorations), so I thought it would be fun to focus on them.
Additionally, the Kid Blogger Network (KBN) has created another giveaway just for you . . . our amazing readers! Be sure to check out the giveaway below for your chance to win a $500 cash prize!

Preschool Cooking Materials
I hope you all enjoyed these owl crafts and activities. My personal favorites are the snacks!
Cooking and creating snacks or meals is such a rich experience for children! They get to practice tons of early learning concepts like measuring, following along with text, and following directions. On top of all of those learning opportunities, the children get to engage their senses.
So, with that in mind, I’ve created a list of some great items to have on hand when diving into a cooking activity with children. Check it out below. I may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.
- Child-sized aprons
- Measuring cups
- Mixing bowls
- Measuring spoons
- Large spoons for mixing
- Kid-friendly utensils
- Kid’s dish set
- Kid’s chef hats
- Aluminum foil
- Parchment paper
Cooking and creating snacks with children is such a wonderful learning activity. And the independence and confidence that the children gain in the process is just the icing on the cake!
