Apple Learning Activities for Toddlers
Developing Fine Motor Skills:
This week, I pasted an apple on a shoe box and punched some holes in the top for noodles to fit through. (top right picture) Who knew something so simple and inexpensive could be so entertaining!!!
Transferring and Early Math Skills:
Another hit from the week was our apple pom-poms. I forgot to bring the tongs to our park play date, so the activity changed a bit and the kids sorted by colors and made patterns with their fingers. I made a sight word memory game for my after-schooler so she could be part of the apple fun too!
Again, I braved putting out a sensory bin. Someday, it will go as planned. Until then, he had a BLAST dumping, picking up, dumping, picking up with his toes, and dumping some more! I just used rice and cut out red construction paper apples to add in.
