apples 2

Not sure what to do with your kiddos during the changing seasons. Well you’ve come to the right place. I love Fall when the leaves on the trees start to change and there is a zest of bright colors. Children can learn so much with each season and what’s around them. Therefore, nature is always a great place to start with helping them to explore their surroundings. These activities are great for 18 to 40 months.

Creating Apple Prints:
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love bringing the kids to pick their own apples or pumpkins. This helps them to explore tastes such as apple cider, popcorn, and apple cider donuts. After we bring home all the apples we pick, it allows us to create fun activities with them.
Supplies:
1 Apple
Knife
Paper Towel
Water or Child Safe Paint
Disposable Paper plate
Light Colored Construction Paper

Steps for Activity:
1. Take the apple and cut it in half
2. Pour some paint in the paper plate so they can your to dip the apple
3. Show your 18-40 month old how to dip the apple in the paint then press it on your construction paper. It will make a surprising figure!
