Preschool Apple Week - Crafts, Activities & Books

Last week in preschool we learned about apples. What a fun week we had tasting, counting, painting,  exploring and reading about apples. It was a great way to kick off the official start of fall ( even if we don't really see or feel fall here in South FL).

As always I try to incorporate art, science, math, fine motor activities, language and literacy in all of our themes. Here are some highlights from our apple themed week at preschool.



The kids really enjoyed our coffee filter apple art. They all came out unique and it was fun to see how they all got into it - especially the water spraying part! For a full how to you can see my earlier post here



Paper Roll Apple Stamping
This was another super easy activity to set up. I took paper towel rolls, cut them in half and folded the middle in on one end so that they looked like an apple shape. I kept things simple so we didn't add stems or leaves but if you really want to do this up check out how Make and Takes did it - so easy and cute.



Muffin Tin Apple Counting
 This muffin tin apple activity was great math practice for my preschoolers. I simply wrote the numbers 1-6 inside the cups and added dots for each. Then the children had to pick apples (pom poms) using our pincers and add the correct number to each cup in the muffin pan.


Apple Sink or Float Experiment
 The kids loved this experiment! I filled up a tub with water and asked the children if they thought our apples would sink or float when put into the tub of water. I made a chart and recorded all their answers then we conducted out little experiment. What did we find? Our apples floated in the water. The kids were amazed - most of them thought our heavy apples would surely sink.



Apple Investigation
 After our experiment I cut open a red, green and yellow apple. We found the apple star and counted all our seeds. We used magnifying glasses to look closely at the seeds, the apple skin and the fruit inside. 




Apple Stamping Art
 After investigating our cut apples we stamped with them and made some fun apple printed art. This was lots of messy fun.



Apple Roll Painting
 One of the kids favorite art projects for the week was apple roll painting. This was so much fun and our finished art was gorgeous. Using a cardboard box, I put an apple template inside with some red, green and yellow paint and added an apple. The children rolled the apple in the box making paint tracks on our apple template.

Here is a peek at a few of the finished apples. It was such a fun process!



Apple Seed Planting
 I put aside the seeds from our apple investigation so that we could plant them and see what happens. We are currently taking care of our potted seeds - fingers crossed.



Apple Play Dough Trees
 At the start of the week, I made cinnamon apple pie play dough in red, green and yellow. You can get the full recipe here. I cut out some trees from construction paper and the children rolled apples out of our play dough to put on the trees.

Mid week - our play dough had mixed and swirled so that it looked marbled. We used cookie cutters to make apples shapes and I think they turned out pretty cool.


At the end of the week we had an apple tasting of red, green and yellow apples. The children tried all 3 apples and we graphed their favorites on a chart. It was a fabulous apple filled week!
