Autumn manipulatives for the preschool room

Autumn is my favorite time of year to use seasonal manipulatives because there are so many different options.  The items on the list below are great for math games, patterning, sensory tables, tactile language activities, the block area, and fine motor exercises.

Some autumn manipulatives you can include in your activities and center include:

  • Leaves
  • Acorns
  • Miniature pumpkins
  • Soy beans
  • Corn kernels
  • Popcorn
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Candy corn
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Seasonal confetti
  • Seed pods
  • Orange, yellow, and brown gems
  • Apples
  • Apple seeds
  • Pinecones
I'd love to know how you use some of these items in your classroom, share your ideas in the comments!
