Gather some brayers, bubble wrap, and paint for fall art that toddlers will love!
One of my favorite tools for painting with toddlers is the brayer. It allows toddlers to use their entire arm (and shoulder) as they roll the brayer back and forth. This is a wonderful way to strengthen fine motor development! Having them roll paint on bubble wrap adds a sensory experience, as the brayer has to move over the bumps. Pressing paper onto the painted bubble wrap is another sensory experience. And when they peel away the paper to see the results? That is the best part! It’s no wonder this is one of our favorite art activities. It really can be done during any season. Just change the colors!

They truly could be happy just doing this.
But I loved that one of the children paused to press the bubbles. Another sensory experience! And who does not like to pop the bubbles in bubble wrap?
Once the children have covered the bubble wrap, you can show them how to press paper on the top of it. I chose orange paper for the fall season.
When they lift the paper and see the print? Always priceless.
Simple fun that can be done any season!
