Fall/Apple Learning

I love this time of year and we have been having some fun with our school! Love all our fall themed activities!!! Hope you can get inspired to make learning fun and can see how easy it is!

I set up this little apple store for the kids. I bought a tri-fold board from the dollar store, but a hole in the center, stapled some black construction paper and apples we already had and bam, instant apple store...not to be confused with an Apple/Mac store...which  is frowned upon in this house! I also dug out our apple/fall books, and set up a little sensory bin with other goodies. Such a big hit. The girls played apple store for a solid three weeks. And Finley learned to spell "apple." Nice.


 This was a fun craft I found online. I scented the paint with apple pie spice and cinnamon and it made for a yummy smelling apple pie craft! The girls loved it!

Emerson and his leaf sensory tray. Big hit. Big mess.
We also made apple scented play-dough. The girls had fun making "apple pies" with this.



Apple stamping...I think we've done this every year. Cutting open the apples allow for some fun dialogue and great learning experiences. Easy and fun!
Found this pack of pumpkins die cuts and plastic pumpkins in the dollar spot at Target...great for counting and math! We've used these a done of different ways.

Leaf rubbing.

I labeled these acorn stickers and Rowynn got to practice counting and number identification.

Fun apple puzzle from the dollar store.


Making mini-apple pies. The girls love to cook.

They were so yummy!

I hid foam pumpkins around the house for the girls to find. They brought them back to their "pumpkin patch" (green construction paper) and we counted to see who had the most, who had the least, we skip counted them by 2's and 3's, made math sentences and so much more. What a easy and fun way to practice our math skills!

Making patterns with our pumpkins

Finley colored this fun placemat, how cute!

I hung foam apples that had letters on them and the girls practiced letter sounds and spelling. We used these same apples last year! Great buy for a couple of bucks!

I set up this super fun sensory area in our sand and water table...oh what fun they have had!!
