Here is a fun game that is geared for Halloween but could be modified for any theme. It encourages kids to fine tune their motor skills. I found it on No Time for Flashcards which is a site that is filled with inspirational games and crafts for kids of all ages.
Here is another fun activity from this same site that will encourage your kids to go foraging outside as well as making a fun craft item for autumn. I'm thinking these could not only be used as place mats, but could also be hung as wonderful little works of art on the fridge.
I also came across this link on Pinterest that takes you to a list of over 75 Kid Approved Fun Activities that can be done anytime of the year. Now that link alone should keep you busy for quite a while being inspired with all the fun activities you can do with your little ones.
Now for some Autumn inspired artwork.

If you're living in a part of the country or world where it's still pretty warm, take heart as Autumn is almost here and that means cooler temps and lots of leaves to rake! Yaaaaayyyy! :)
