I decided to use my Instagram platform to get others to share with me their best Autumn activities for toddlers. My followers did not disappoint. So, I have collated a selection of the best Autumn activities for toddlers on Instagram to share with you here. I love the creativity and ingenuity of these activities that were shared from various countries around the world. Please visit their accounts for the full captions and complete selection of images for each activity.   Coffee Filter Autumn Leaves @keeping.up.with.isaac A simple STEAM activity for toddlers to show water absorption in leaves. It is amazing how a plain white coffee filter is transformed into beautiful Autumn / fall colours. Materials: Coffee filters Marker Scissors Bowl of water Step-by-step: Place 5-10 coffee filters on top of each other. Trace a leaf shape on the top coffee filter and carefully cut the filters at one time. Using a small circular cutter, draw a thick band of circles of different colours using markers. Leaving a small white portion in the middle. Fold the coffee filter, then dip the center white portion into the bowl of water. Make sure to dip only the tip. You'll see water travel up the leaf and spread the ink throughout.
