Fall is a great time to explore apples and we had some super cool ideas shared at the Discover & Explore linky last week.
The kids will enjoy these hands-on activities as they explore more about apples -- painting, playdough, taste tests and sensory fun!
Apple Activities for Fall
Grab some fall paints and create beautiful Autumn Art with this great activity from Happy Hooligans. Apple prints are a fun way to combine the scents of the season with hands-on art.
For something that smells just like an apple, try this wonderful Apple Pie Playdough from Where Imagination Grows. You'll also find a great apple book list here too!
Muchkin and Bean also has a great recipe for Fall-scented Playdoughs -- apple, pumpkin and maple (yum!)! I know I promised apple fun but I just couldn't resist these amazing creations.
And what's fall without an apple tasting experiment -- Munchkins & Moms has a fun Apple Tasting Picnic for some tasty family fun this week! Kids learn all types of things during this activity -- not all apples taste or look the same, how apple textures fell different in your mouth and even the size of an apple varies.
You can find information about apple-picking and visits to a cider mill in our Apple Activities post too -- both are great family fun in the fall and will encourage kids to learn more about apples!
Thanks to everyone who linked up at Discover & Explore. Make sure you stop by this week's linky to see all the Pumpkin ideas & activities!
