I know it’s been pretty quiet here on my blog lately, but believe me I’ve been working on some things to share with you! We’ve started working on an apple unit and are having a blast! I planned the unit for my DD#2 and figured my DD#3 could tag along with some of the stories too. I’ve created a couple of toddler activities to go along with what DD#2 is doing too. I’ve been surprised though that the older kids wanted to join in the fun too. So now we all are doing apple activities!
Here are some of the resources we are using:

I spent some time last week photographing apples and I’m pretty proud of my attempt! I definetly won’t be moving into food photography anytime soon though ;)I did however, enjoy using those images to create toddler apple pattern cards. DD#3 has been working on learning apple colors, so I thought she’d enjoy practicing using the apple cards. If you’d like a copy too, just click the photo.
Next week I’ll have a guest post showcasing one of our toddler apple activities. My 2 1/2 year old and I had so much fun putting it together. I can’t wait to share it with you. 🙂
Oh, my kids are doing an informal survey and would love to know what your favorite apple is. We’d love if you’d post your answer in the comment section 🙂
