Autumn is such a great time of year, I love the colourful leaves underfoot and the first hint of winter. To celebrate the changing seasons I’ve pulled together a wonderful collection of Fall Science Experiments.
Fall Science Experiments for Kids
First up is this lovely fall sensory rice tray. This would be great for sorting seeds too.
Model the changing seasons with this fun LEGO activity. We had great fun searching for the right coloured bricks and little props for each season.
Can you collect sticks to make and test rafts with?
Find out why leaves change colour in fall and make a lovely autumn collage.
Try some leaf printing. You could add faces to make this a bit more exciting.
This is a great collection of fun things to do with sticks and leaves. We love the peg leaf people!

Get your friends and family guessing with some lovely autumn estimating jars.
Find out why hedgehogs hibernate.
Learn about static electricity with these jumping leaves.
Make a magic potion using items collected on an autumn walk. Take a strip of contact paper out with you to attach your treasures to as you explore.

Find out how tall a tree is without climbing it!
Do you know how to find out how old a tree is?
Did you know you can make pinecone weather station using just pinecones?
Look after birds in the colder months with these easy bird feeders.
How about these Stick Man activity ideas? Stick Man is a great book for this time of year.
Investigate the best way to preserve leaves and maybe even make some leaf people.

Don’t forget to check out our fun Halloween Science Experiment ideas too.
Finally, with Christmas just around the corner you could make some fun science kits to give as gifts.
