If you have been reading my blog for any period of time you know we love us some apples! Wyatt eats an apple almost every night at bedtime. We go apple picking each fall and we LOVE to bake with apples as well! I have even let my love for apples leak over into a few gifts I have made for the teachers at school. We have enjoyed a few "themed" days that where we complete fun activities along with the book.
I started talking to the kids about some things they wanted to do this fall. Last year we went to the Millstadt Ekerts and that is totally on their list again this year. We had a blast!
Instead of a book with coordinating activities I decided to change it up and just pick "apples" to do some fun stuff with....
Since Wyatt is at school every day and Sloane 3 days we don't have the amount of time we did during the summer. We completed these activities over a period of a few days. I started with a Apple YouTube video that has great information and cute sing a long with it.
We colored, painted, and even sketched anything that had to do with apples. Sloane loves to paint. I drew some apples and she went to town painting with watercolors...
I created a fun worksheet about apples. It asked questions about the different colors of apples. We weighed the apple. We measured how tall the apple was using LEGO's and I also left a spot for them to draw a picture of an apple too!
Nothing would be complete without baking...Wyatt helped in the beginning but by the end it was just Sis and I in the kitchen making Mix and Match Mama's cute apple hand pies. We also have slow cooker Autumn applesauce on the menu for this week as well.
Wyatt and Sloane both LOVE Science experiments. They enjoyed this little erupting apples experiment...we laughed so hard!!
Lastly there were a few more questions I didn't put on their little worksheets but I still thought they would have fun answering. We concluded our apple fun with a apple investigation...
We had so much fun learning about apples together. I am already brainstorming some fun pumpkins activites and they are looking forward to it as well!!!
