We have done our fair share of fall activities for kids, fall art projects like this fall tree art project and even engaged in some cool fall sensory activities like this fall sensory jar, fall sensory bin or this beautiful fall sensory bags.

For this year’s upcoming fall season we are kicking off with some simple back to basics fall art project for toddlers and preschoolers.

Washable Kids Tempera Paint

Hard Plastic 1-Ounce Shot Glasses

Dixie Bath Cups
