I am always exhausted by Wednesday, so am guessing that you might be too! My gift to you – a super short post with a super simple activity for your preschooler. Enjoy!
Pickin’ Apples from The Mailbox magazine
- Red, yellow and green pom-poms
- A tree
- Sorting plates
- Tongs or Tweezers
1. Make a tree. You can get fancy with construction paper and make it huge, or just print one on the computer and have your in-home artist color it. When he is finished with his masterpiece, invite him to cut it out.
2. Place the apple tree on the floor. Put various colored apple pom-poms in the foliage. Have your child pick the apples with their tweezers or tongs (fine motor skills), and place them in the matching plate (early math skills, color recognition). I used different colored plastic lids, but really, anything could be used.
