Looking for fall math activities for toddlers and preschoolers? Then try this simple fall math activity!

We are all about math and numbers in my house. That's what happens when you have a kid with hypernumeracy... 

As a result, we do a lot of playful math activities with loose parts. And, since the leaves are changing colors around here, we have been in full fall mode for our play activities. 

This no-prep fall math activity tray was the perfect way to explore counting, grouping, and color sorting for both of my boys.

J sorted his leaves by color first. He noted that there were 10 of each color and promptly told me there were 40 leaves altogether.

J then put out seven rings and practiced some grouping (and multiplying!). He put three leaves inside each of the shower curtain rings. "That's 21, mom!"

K also attempted some grouping.

And he did manage to successfully group his leaves into groups of two, as you can see him starting to do here.
