Cute Kids Fall Activity Journal [PDf Printable]

After feeling the first crisp fall morning, I knew it was time to make my fall activity journal for the kiddos so that we could really start to explore and enjoy it!

I have created a fall BINGO/scavenger hunt of sorts but this cute fall activity journal focuses on really exploring all the little things about fall through sketching and writing.

It fits in a pocket, so it’s really the perfect thing to bring on those cool day hikes to give kids something to think about!

It’s not all sketches though – I also included some prompts for crunching leaves and apple stamps (because I mean… what kid fall day is complete without that stuff anyways??)

I will provide written instructions for how to fold the journal in this article, however, I have a really good picture tutorial here (it’s for my camp themed one but it will still work!) as well as the video at the end of the written tutorial below!

Fall Activity Journal For Kids

Encourage kids to explore all that fall has to offer with this pocket sized Fall Activity Journal! Sketch, crunch and stamp your way through fall with the family with these six prompts!

Materials

  • Paper
  • Materials for the activities in the book:
  • Pencils
  • Stamp pad/paint
  • Glue

Instructions

    1. Fold in half lengthwise so that the pictures are showing. Fold back out.
    2. Fold in half width wise so that pictures remain showing. Fold back out.
    3. Fold in half width wise, then fold IN the quarters. Fold back out.
    4. Fold in half width wise again, then make a cut to the next section along the line
    5. Stand it up so that yours looks like mine in the picture (with the slit you cut facing up towards you)
    6. Push in until the papers meet, then close it (it should sort of naturally close in the correct order due to the folds. Make sure that the cover and the back image are in the right spots, and everything else should be in the right spot!)

Notes

It's a little hard to follow if you have never folded a journal like this before, so watch the video on this page for visual instructions (this is for my camping journal, but they both are made the same way!)
