Autumn Preschool Activities
These fine motor mats are such a fun way to engage preschoolers this autumn. Because they’re print-and-go, they’re perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers like you!
Kids will have so much fun building these objects they won’t even realize they’re learning and working on skills.
It’s important to include activities in your preschool plans that will strengthen fine motor activities.
Building with LEGOs is a great way to work on those fine motor skills. Picking up the bricks, manipulating them to build objects, and then pulling them apart again are all activities that strengthen fine motor muscles.
Fine motor muscles are used in zipping zippers, tying shoelaces, handwriting, and more.
In addition to strengthening fine motor skills, these LEGO building mats will help your kids practice handwriting, counting, and sorting.
Preparing Your Autumn Activities
To prepare these autumn preschool activities, print the pages on cardstock and laminate them for durability. Gather your LEGO bricks and some dry erase markers. You’re all set!
When you laminate these fine motor mats, you make them reusable. Kids can complete them using dry erase markers. Then, wipe them clean before the next child uses them.
How to Use These Mats
Gather your LEGOs, have your child choose a mat, and let them get started. You can use a clear LEGO base to build the autumn item. Kids can place the base on the fine motor mat and use the mat as an example.
Or, they can place the base to the side and build. This helps strengthen hand-eye coordination as they use the mat as an example and build the shape one brick at a time.
After building the object (acorn, apple, leaf, etc.), kids can trace the sentence at the top of the page. This is a great way for kids to practice handwriting and letter formation.
Then, have them fill in the blanks at the bottom of the page. They’ll count each color of bricks they used and write the numbers on the lines.

Hello, Harvest Moon – While tired farmers and their families are in bed, the harvest moon silently climbs into the sky and starts working its magic. For some, it is the nightly signal to rise and shine. It is time to hunt, to work, or to play in the shadows. For a little girl and her cat, it is an invitation to enjoy the wonders of the night and a last flood of light before the short days of winter set in.
Awesome Autumn – Autumn is awesome! Leaves change color. Animals fly south or get ready to hibernate. People harvest crops and dress up as scary creatures for Halloween. And then there are pickup football games to play, Thanksgiving foods to eat, leaf piles to jump in―all the amazing things that happen as the air turns crisp and cool.
