Apple Crafts, Food & Fun!

Back to School is almost here and fall is just around the corner. I don't know about you but that makes me think of apples and I love apples. I thought it was the perfect time to share some of our favorite apple themed crafts, learning activities, food/snacks and fun.


Apple Fun
Have some delicious fun with your kiddos and take part in 

buy as many different apples as you can find and taste & compare them.
Which are sweet? Sour? 
Which are your favorites?
Which are your least favorites?


 We used a simple chart (see above) to keep track 
of the results of our taste test.

Once you finish your taste test and you have snacked on some apples,
try some apple stamping with the leftovers.
If you cut them different ways -
you'll get a few varied prints/designs.

Apple Crafts
Talk about the Seasons of an Apple Tree
& help your kiddos make a picture to show what they learned

Looking for an easy craft for even the littlest hands?

Apple Themed Learning
Introduce letter A formation by using 
apple shaped cookie cutters to make the letter A

encourage fine motor skills and letter a recognition

Practice  sight words with this fun game -

Apple Food
Kids will enjoy eating & making these fun Apple Smiles.

How about these easy Crescent Roll Mini Apple Pies




Tomorrow, I will be sharing some of our favorite 
Apple Themed Books with you.
