You can do many kid-friendly crafts and fun activities with apples or inspired by the fall apple harvest. Enjoy the season and choose a couple of these fall apple activities to do with your kids.
I know lots of people say it, but autumn really is one of my favorite times of the year. The harvest is in full force, leaves are starting to change and the sweaters I put away for summer are starting to make their appearance again. While everyone is focused on pumpkins, I like to focus on apples. I live in Washington state and they are kind of a big deal here. The apple is also a fun harvest fruit to incorporate into your child's play in the afternoon or weekend activities. Some of these apple activities are not only fun but also educational and will help reinforce the skills they learn during school.
