Fall Sensory Art Projects for Visually Impaired Kids

fun fall activities

I’ve always felt that the best way to celebrate any holiday or season is with crafts!

Easter and spring is one of my favorite times for crafts as we decorate eggs and make paper flowers, but fall may be the best time for natural crafts.

In the fall you can walk around outside in your yard or at the park and find all sorts of crafty materials, from crunchy leaves in bright colors to pokey acorns and pinecones. So tactile and so much fun to play with!

Of course fall also brings apple and pumpkin picking and there are so many things you can do with both to decorate your house and get your whole family in an autumn mood.

Here are some of our favorite Adaptive Fall Crafts:
