This week we have been getting ready for our first Family Event-Apples in the Sukkah!
Morah brought to our classroom a box of apples.We could touch them and smell how sweet they are. For some of us, this was our first experience with the fruit. We felt the round shape and smooth skin.
We also saw that when we push the apple on the floor, it rolls like a ball!
We had a very special job to do for our big event- making applesauce with our toddler friends.
First, we watched how Morah peeled off the skin from the apples. Then, we put pieces of apple in a big pot and poured in water. Morah cooked the pot on the stove and when it was done, we had yummy apple sauce, which we love so much!
We also found another use for an apple-we can use it as a stamp! Half of an apple is a perfect fit for our older friends’ hands. We were so amazed to see what we can do using an apple dipped in paint!
Our younger friends painted too by using their hands for tapping or moving back and forth to make a pretty apple colored painting!
The best thing about an apple is the taste. We love the sweetness of the apples and when we take a bite we can hear a very yummy “crunch, crunch!”
