LITERACY: APPLE SEED LETTERS

Cut a sheet of paper into fourths. In each cut square draw an apple outline. In the middle of the apple write a letter. I used a white crayon for this. Set out the apple letters with dried black beans (apple seeds). Have your child form each letter with the beans.

This apple idea is perfect for little hands because it encourages fine motor practice! Instead of just random letters why not focus on the letters in your child’s name?!

MATH: ROLL & ADD APPLE SEEDS

Draw a large apple on a sheet of paper. Give your child some dried black beans (seeds) and a dice. These large foam dice are great for little hands! Have them roll the dice, identify the number, and add that many seeds to their apple.

PRE-WRITING: APPLE LINES

Draw 4 apples on a large sheet of paper. In the center of each draw various dashed line types (vertical, horizontal, curvy, zig-zag). Tape the sheet up on the wall then give your child markers to trace over each line.

SENSORY: SOAPY APPLE WATER BIN

Water play is one of my FAVORITES! It is so easy to prep, easy to clean, and always seems to be a hit with preschoolers. Don’t overthink it and give this fall themed idea a try!

Add a few drops of soap and a drop of green food dye to a plastic bin. Fill with water. Toss in some apples, sponges, slotted spoons, funnels, etc. Invite your kiddos to wash the apples and PLAY!

CRAFT: FIRST LETTER OF MY NAME COLLAGE

Cut a brown tree trunk out of paper and glue it to a white sheet of paper. Set out a plate of red and green paint then cut an apple down the center so you have two apple halves. Add a fork to the back of each for easy gripping. Give your child a plate of red and green paint. Have them dip and stamp the apples on top of the trunk to create an apple tree.

SCIENCE: DANCING APPLE SEEDS

Fill a clear glass with sprite. Toss in a few apple seeds. Watch and observe what happens!

Questions to ask: 1. What do you see? 2. Are the seeds sinking or floating? 3. Do you think the seeds will dance in all liquids? (Experiment with just plain water and compare.)

So what’s going on? In short, tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide stick to the seeds and carry them to the surface. As they pop the seeds sink, begin to collect more bubbles, and then up they go again!

MOVE YOUR BODY!
