Fall is my FAVORITE season! The weather is cooling down, the leaves on the trees are changing colors, and pumpkin-spice is about to take over the world for the next few months. I have been SO happy pinning fall-themed activities and dreaming about Halloween costumes for the girls.
But first, I want to share five FUN, free, EASY apple-themed kids activities.

In case you missed the introduction to our invitation to play series (click here), let me give you a brief introduction to how we structure these fun, simple activities at our house.
- Maybe you are a homeschooling family looking for some play-based learning ideas for your toddler or preschooler.
- Or you are spending the lots of time inside with your children due weather.
- It could be you are a WAHM searching for a quick activity that will engage your little one while you send an e-mail or film a FB live video.
An invitation to play is an easy, open-ended activity that uses just a few materials found around the house. Keeping these learning activities set aside for special times keeps them interesting and intentionally engaging for when you need 10-15 minutes to get something else done! Best of all, these simple materials can be mixed and matched for countless other activities throughout the year.
This week, I have a freebie for you: a download with FIVE simple invitations to play, including a materials list!
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the skills found in our apple-themed kids activities:
