A is for Apple

Song: Johnny AppleSeed Song

Oh The Lord's been good to me,
and so I thank the Lord.
For giving me the things I need.
The sun and the rain and the apple seed,
oh the Lord's been good to me.

Way up High in the Apple Tree (make a tree with arms)
Two little apples smiling at me (Make fists and put next to your smile)
I shook that tree as hard as I could (Go back to being a tree and wobble back and forth)
Down came the Apples and mmmmm they were good! (Have hands fall down and then rub stomach)


Cut a few apples in half. Dip in red, yellow and green paints and the use like stamps on paper.


Observe an apple and record your findings. Use all five senses.
What does it look like? red, round, has a stem, shiny, etc

What does it smell like?

How does it feel? smooth, hard

What does it sound like?

How does it taste? sweet, sour

Sensory bags/boxes

Put parts of an apple in a paper bag or covered box and have each child feel what is inside and guess what it is.

For example: core, stem, leaves, seeds, peels, apple sauce


Apple Pizza

Toast english muffin halves and top with cream cheese, cinnamon, and apple sauce. Toast for 20 seconds.

Make an apple pie for family night!
