We talked about how apples aren't just red. We made yellow apple, red apple, and green apple crafts! We even talked about John (Johnny Appleseed) Chapman and made cooking pot headbands, to celebrate his birthday!
Monday, we painted a paper plate yellow, we used the handprints as a leaf, and added a brown stem. We attached a song about an apple to the tune of: "I'm a Little Teapot".
Tuesday, we talked about apples being red and decided for the kiddos to make an "inside the apple" craft.
Wednesday, we painted a green apple.
Thursday, we made tye-dyed apples by coloring a coffee filter with markers and wetting the filter to give it the tye-dye looked. We cut out the middle of an apple and placed the filter between the papers to display the apple. We added the Johnny Appleseed Prayer.
Friday, we made headbands. The kiddos painted their apples to attach to the pot, and again, we included the Johnny Appleseed Prayer.
What a fun week this was.. however, next week, I'm sure the kids will have a lot of fun because we will talk about DINOSAURS!! :)
