Do you have a favorite FALL theme? Hands down, all things APPLES tops my list! We are wrapping up our apple-theme over here, so thought I would pop in and share some of our favorite activities!
Printed off these beginning sound apple trees (*tip: use a dry erase pouch instead of laminating) and paired them with a set of magnetic letters tossed in a pom-pom tray for added sensory bin style FUN! I asked Riley to say a picture name, identify its beginning sound, then hunt for that letter, and cover the apple.
APPLE PRINT ADDITION
Taking good ol’ apple stamping to the next level with a little apple addition and counting! Rolled out a sheet of art roll paper, added some basic addition problems, and stamped apples with paint to represent each one! This was SO MUCH FUN (and a little messy HA!)! And don’t worry Zoey (2) got to participate too! I switched things up a little and just wrote the numbers 1-3 on the sheet and had her stamp apples to represent each number, then we all just went crazy and stamped apples EVERYWHERE!
PARTS OF AN APPLE CRAFT
Pulled out are art roll paper AGAIN and whipped up this hands-on letter match activity! A quick sketch of a tree labeled with letters and a set of matching “apple” letters written on sticky notes hid around the house made for a fun review of letters and sounds! Find an apple (they were hidden around the house) then find its match on the tree!
APPLE POPSICLE MATS
When I saw these themed popsicle pictures by Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Designs I knew I had to have them! I created a few apple themed pages for my girls so they could build the apple, trace the letter and word, and count to tell how many popsicle sticks they used! THEY LOVED THESE!
