I like to think it is all of those things plus as a preschool teacher, I've realized that there are crazy amounts of fun holidays and therefore fun preschool crafts to be done in the Fall.
I mean you have Apple Season, Mexican Independence Day, Pumpkin Season, Harvest Parties, Halloween, Fall Trees, Fall Animals, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas.
Have you noticed that there are so many cute crafts available for all of these units?? This year for our Thanksgiving Feast with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) San Diego/Baja, our preschool students at Little Builder's Preschool are in charge of decorations. We have been busy making turkeys, fall trees, Mayflower Journey, placemats, Thankful Candles, Silly Handprint Scarecrows, etc*. The list literally goes on & on.

Our kiddos have recently been enjoying using the watercolors painting station in our classroom and some seriously paint a dozen pictures a day. While most get bored painting a few lines and are done, others will paint for hours and we've decided that some of them NEED to be framed, they are that good.
Because of this, we have a plethora of watercolor paintings all over our classroom just waiting to be used for something.
Here is where my genius kicks in. What if we "married" the two?? So I did just that!
That simple yet so stunning!! I really LOVE how these turned out! What do you guys think? Leave me some comments below.
