The past 2 weeks have been spent filling our home with apple-y goodness. The last weeks of September are perfect because they think Johnny Appleseed's birthday lies somewhere around Sept. 26th. We have been having all sorts of fun, that it took 2 weeks to do everything I had planned, and even then we still didn't finish everything.
Check out these apples, made with paper plates. The one on the Left is finger painted and the one on the right is paper scraps glued on. Both projects, Ethan had a blast doing.
Apple Prints: We cut an apple in half and dipped it into paint. He had fun "stamping" the apple all over the page.
We went here and found all sorts of free apple activities to do. There was a really fun sorting game that I made into a file folder game.
