Applicious Fun!

This week was filled with tons of apple fun!
We climbed an 'apple tree' to pick a delicious treat.  :)
The morning babes…..
and the afternoon sweeties.  It rained in the afternoon of our original apple picking day, so we had to wait one day.  
That day we made apple taffy pizza with another class, which was delicious!
The learners all helped peel apples.  They also helped mixed the ingredients.  They were totally engaged and loving it.
Here is the recipe, just in case you would like it.
 We taste tested red, yellow, and green apples and then voted on our favorite.
After we voted, each little learner made an apple craftivity of the same color.  I love how they turned out!  The pattern was from Cara Carroll's Apple Babies clipart.

We ended the week with an 'Apple Fun Day'.  Some of our activities included…..
Playing baseball with an apple,
using bug catcher tongs to pick up miniature apples to race a friend, and
having a spoon race using real apples.
When we were all finished, we threw the leftover battered and bruised apples over the fence for our wildlife friends to enjoy.  :)

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)

  2. Ok climbing the apple tree is the cutest thing I have EVER seen and I am off to pin that! What fun ideas, and I love the recipe! I love reading blogs of preschool teachers because when I get the kiddos in kinder I love to know about all the learning that goes on prior to when they come to me!
