Today we made playdough apples which the children really had a great time with. They took playdough and made apple shapes from it (they used red ... green ... and yellow). Next they made a stem and leaf for each apple.
Once the apples were made the children then took pony beads and pressed them into the apples. Most chose to do color matching with the beads. If you use pony beads with this activity please remember to use supervision with children under the ages of three and those still in the stages of putting small items in their mouths.
