Apples, Apples, Apples

Bug and I have started her tot school program...and I am steadily building it as we go. I can work on weeks ahead while she works on the activities for the current week. Its working, but I don't recommend it. However, I just couldnt find an all in one plan that I wanted to do, so me being me, I took on building my own.

This week is RED, "A", and APPLES! 

I made an Apple felt board set with a picture of herself and apples to put "up on top".  She loves it!
Idea adapted from post on Toddler Brain

We also made an apple tree!
Original Idea from Happy Home Fairy

We recycled a parmesean cheese container to sort red pom poms into. 

I used the RED color matching cards from Homeschool Creations. I laminated the cards and then put them on a ring for Bug to carry around with her.

I gathered red items from around the house and created an eye-spy board. 

We did some painting ....
original idea from
No Time for Flashcards

....and threaded Fruit Loops onto a Pipe Cleaner to make a worm for our newly painted Apple. 

Of all days, Lydia chooses this one to be camera shy! 

And made an edible bracelet.

Added red Fruit Loops to our Apple covered A printed from Making Learning Fun

We ate some Apple Shake Ups.

1 tsp sugar
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 apple, cubed
1 plastic bag

Add sugar, cinnamon, apple cubes to bag. Seal tight. Shake Shake Shake!
Eat up!

Update: See the Apple Shake Ups in action at Mess for Less!!

And of course we colored using red crayons, markers, colored pencils, and even a red pen!
Foloow the links to some of the great printables we used!
