Fall is one of the best times of the year.
There’s so much to look forward to. From cooler weather to apple cider to apple picking and best of all:
The kids are back in school!
Ok, all joking aside, we really do love fall around our home. To us, it signifies the beginning of the holiday season and a time to be with family and build memories.
But there’s another type of building we’ve been doing lately that my kids just can’t seem to get enough of.
Building characters on our fall pattern block mats.
We’ve created a few different pattern block mats for kids in the past including these but to us, these fall ones are the cutest so far!
Fall Pattern Block Mats For Kids
Here’s a quick video showing my older son using these pattern block mats:
One of my favorite things about these pattern block mats is the ease of using them.
They only require a few supplies and once you’ve printed and laminated them, you’re all set!
- Pattern blocks
- White cardstock
- Fall Tangram Mats
- Laminator (optional, but recommended if you plan to reuse them)
- Laminating pouches (optional, but recommended if you plan to reuse them)
All you need to do to get started is print out your pattern block puzzle pages, laminate them, and let your kids go wild!
Any way you choose to use these fall tangram puzzles, I’m sure your kids will love them.

Reading to kids is one of the best things you can do for your children!
Reading helps preschoolers develop their vocabulary, improves their literacy rate, boosts creativity, cognitive abilities as well as social-emotional intelligence- among other benefits.
So next time you’re looking for some fun storytime activities with your little one, grab a book from your shelf and read to them! Below are some of the top fall themed books for kids.
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Leaf: The mischievous old lady swallowed a handful of leaves! Her tummy started to rumble. So she swallowed some more items. Then even more. But as her stomach grew full, the leaves began to poke out through her mouth… when suddenly – poofffff! – it turned into a scarecrow!
Pete The Cat Falling For Autumn: Pete is not a fan of fall. But he decides to do some detective work and finds out that there are lots of things about this season he loves, like corn mazes, hayrides, wearing scarves, and apple picking! This story helps kids learn that even though they might not love every season of the year, there are still good parts to each one.
