Apples Aplenty

One of the yummiest things about fall is all the apples!  We live in the heart of apple country so there is no shortage of apple related fun.

Apple Prints- no apple week is complete without these

Apple Tree Counting Craft- we'll make a few trees and then dab on apples to practice counting

10 Apples up on Top- like the story book, we'll be stacking paper apples

Sliced Apple- we'll use a Q-tip to paint the seeds on our own cross section of an apple

Yarn Apples- we'll be making these cuties using yarn and pipe cleaners

Apple Picking- we'll take a trip to an apple orchard to pick some of our own apples

Apple Sequencing- Eva will learn about the lifecycle of an apple

Apple Festival- if we get a chance, we'll head to a local town's apple festival

Apple Pie Playdough- I made a batch of playdough scented with cinnamon for Eva to pretend to make pies with

There are so many things to make with apples.  We'll try our hand at applesauce, apple crisp and even do some apple tasting.
