Apple Picking

We went to the apple orchard yesterday to pick some apples.  It was so much fun!
When we got home we counted the apples (21!) and sorted them into three categories- red, green and both red and green.
We recited a favorite apple poem as we worked:
Apple, apple green
Apple, apple red
An apple fell on Eva's head!
We also made some apple prints.  I cut the apples in half and pushed plastic forks in to use as handles.  It worked really well and made it so much easier for Eva to lift the apples out of the paint and off the paper.


I cored one of the halves so that the "star" was visible like Stacie at the Amazing Mess did and Eva used white paint to stamp some apple blossoms along with her apples.
