It’s apple season and it’s time to start thinking about apple related activities! In my kindergarten classroom, we have many books about apples and we have been pouring through them.
Last year I wrote several posts for LeapFrog Learning Path, which is a great resource for parents. Here are a few apple related activities to try out at home or in your early childhood classroom, if you are a teacher.
Apple Pie Play Dough is one of my absolute favorite activities. I bring my pie plates into the classroom and the kids can make the filling with cinnamon scented Play Dough. Click on the picture or the link for more details and the recipe.
Umm. Who doesn’t love apple pie?
I posted the recipe for Kid Sized Apple Pies last year and they were a big hit. The best thing was that they were baked in canning jar lids so they were the perfect size without buying special mini-pie plates. Click the link or picture for the recipe and step by step instructions.
Finally, for the little artist at your house, we have apple painting.
This isn’t just a simple painting activity. This takes attention to detail and subtle color differences to a new level. The Observational Apple Painting activity is a fun way to slow down and take notice!
Happy Apple Season!
