kids craft: apples, apples, apples


Today, we celebrated apple season and the life of a man named Johnny Appleseed!




Books We Read:
Ducking for Apples by Lynne Berry (the kids loved this silly tale of five bicycle riding ducks!)
Johnny Appleseed – Jodie Shepherd (a good choice for reading aloud)
A New House for Mouse – Petr Horacek (I love this great fall book and so did the kids)



Craft:
We made Johnny Appleseed Puppets from these cute kits at Oriental Trading.com
We also made Apple Jack bracelets using pipe cleaners and cereal, and also shared a bottle of some delicious apple juice.

Game:
I hid red paper apples all around the program room for the children to find. Each person with an apple earned a prize!

We had almost 20 children attend our party and everyone had a great time.
