How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestro
Summary ~ Even though this book is geared toward a slightly older age group, it has simple text for even the little ones that explains how an apple grows from a small flower bud to a yummy piece of fruit for you to eat!
What You’ll Need:
- red, white, green and brown foam sheets or construction paper
- an apple
- glue & tape
How to Make the ‘a’ for apple:
- Cut out a lowercase ‘a’ from a piece of red foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 2” x 4” ~ small, but oh so cute!
- Cut out a small oval/circle from the white foam that will fit behind the inside of the letter ‘a’ to use as the inside of the apple.
- From the brown foam sheet, cut out a stem and five small apple seeds.
- From the green foam sheet, cut out a leaf for your apple.
- Glue or tape the white circle to the back of your lowercase ‘a’ so that it shows through the center.
- Count out the seeds with your little one and glue them into the center to form the star at the center of the apple.
- Glue or tape the stem and apple to the back of the letter ‘a’.
