More Apples

Here are some more apple activities that we did recently.
A fun art activity was printing using cut apples and poster paint:

Having seen many "do-a-dot" pages online, and not having any daubers, we decided to try using one with a circular sponge dabber and paint. I found this page [here].

E seemed to like it. She likes any excuse to use paint. I imagine this method is a little messier than using bingo daubers.

I made up a game for E to play which was simply a picture of an apple tree and each apple had a number written on it. I supplied a pack of number flashcards (spectrum brand) and a pack of colour flashcards (home-made). She would randomly pick one of each and use crayons to colour the apples the corresponding colour. She loved this game, so I ended up drawing more worksheets with more numbers and one with lower-case vowels which we played the same way.

A couple of weeks later we headed to Donnybrook for the Apple Festival and a play at the Apple Fun-Park.

Apples are fun!
