I’ve got lots of exciting Fall preschool themes to help you do just that with your little ones this season. These themed lessons include activities, printables, and book suggestions.

You’ll have fun exploring Fall with these preschool themes perfect for young children. Although these themes are ideal for preschool learners, I think you’ll find they can easily be adapted for toddlers, kindergartners, and older kids too with just a little creativity.

Check out some of these exciting themes and learn a little more about what’s included in each of these preschool themes below.

All About Me

An All About Me preschool theme is a great way for each student to begin to explore their own individual traits: what makes them special and unique. The goal of this preschool theme is to help children begin to learn about themselves and each other.

Activities like the Reflection STEAM will help your preschool learners explore facial expressions and present opportunities to talk about how our expressions can show what we are feeling.

You can use the activities and printables in this All About Me preschool theme to help your little learners understand that everyone is special.

Friends & Feelings

This fun preschool theme offers more opportunities to teach your preschool learners to consider others and the feelings of others.

In this Friends & Feelings preschool theme, you can help your preschoolers begin to develop an understanding of feelings, learn to express their feelings in a healthy way, and explore friendship through a variety of creative activities perfect for early learners.

Talk about thoughts, ideas, and opinions. Explain that everyone has their own and no one is more or less important than another person. It’s the perfect opportunity to begin teaching your preschoolers about tolerance, acceptance, and loving one another.

You won’t want to miss all the fun crafts and activities in the Friends & Feelings preschool theme.

Want to know my favorite thing about a Thanksgiving theme with preschoolers? Turkeys! Lessons about these gobbling birds always lead to smiles on the faces of my preschool learners.

In this Fall theme, I’ve included lots of activities and printables you can use to explore the Thanksgiving holiday with your kids this year.

There are so many Thanksgiving preschool theme adventures to be had! You can begin to explore the first Thanksgiving, talk about how to give thanks, have fun doing random acts of kindness, or spread love and gratitude by thanking first responders with your preschool learners this Fall.

This theme is filled with fun possibilities so don’t miss out!

Down on the Farm

My preschoolers love singing “Old Macdonald Had a Farm.” If that describes your kids too, this Down on the Farm theme is perfect for you! You can use this theme to explore farm animals, life on the farm, and life cycles with your preschool learners this Fall.

I’ve included a Farm themed preschool worksheet printable pack in this theme that will help you explore a variety of early learning skills including tracing, fine motor skills, and early math skills like shape identification and recognition with your preschoolers.

Orchard Harvest

Apples, apples, everywhere this Fall! So, it’s the perfect time to explore the Orchard and talk about harvest time at the orchard with your preschool learners. You might even wish to consider an apple picking field trip to your local orchard for a more hands-on approach.

Either way, you won’t want to miss the orchard-themed crafts and activities in this Fall preschool theme. Our favorite activity was exploring and learning to identify the parts of a tree with a hands-on investigation station activity that involved weaving “roots.”

Which preschool themes are you considering for your little learners this Fall? Will you study orchards, farms, and the first Thanksgiving? Do you have a theme in mind that I didn’t include?
