This week, our school theme is apples.
Take a look at the SIZE of this apple that Alex found at the grocery store last weekend!
We declared Thursday morning to be “Apple Fun Day”. Grace was over, and we had LOTS of apple fun together.
Once all the apples were cut, the kids circled the table to try a slice of each variety. Although there was nothing scientific about the CHAOS of 4 children
eating a LOT of apples, it was still a lot of fun!
I think Grace’s face gives away what she thought about this particular apple. The “Cripps Pink” was the SOUREST apple any of us had ever tasted. Even I puckered up!
Jensyn had a good time testing all the apple varieties, too :)
In the end, we all agreed that the GIANT APPLE (honeycrisp) was the tastiest.
It was crunchy, sweet, and delicious!
We put the remaining apple slices (and added a few more) in a pot,
added a bit of water, and the kids learned how apples turn into applesauce.
Later, we enjoyed the homemade applesauce with our lunch.
While the applesauce was cooking, we made apple prints on white construction paper.
After that, we made handprint trees with fingerprint apples.
In order, these painting belong to:
Max (3), Alex (4.5), and Grace (4.5)
Can you tell who did the best job following directions? :)
We had such a fun morning!
Sadly, they all bailed on me before getting roped
into cleaning the kitchen and doing the dishes ;)
