We made apple pies in preschool

This is a fun little apple pie to make with your preschoolers….

The children started cooking up their apple pies by painting a paper plate with red paint.

Then they sprinkled the painted plate with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Well – they got a little carried away with the spices…

But the room sure did smell good…

We read the Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall and talked about the growth stages of apples. The children enjoyed this little apple tree sequencing flannel board activity to go along with the story.

And then they played with the apple pie tree flannel board that I made…

And we made apple patterns which ended up in a little bit of this and a little bit of that on the floor!

A pretty sweet day all around:)

i am borrowing the flannel board idea for this book, one we read every fall. why not make edible apple pie ? we always make “no bake” apple pies after sharing this story with mini graham cracker pie crusts, apple pie filling, cinnamon, and whipped cream. even if the children choose not to eat it, they have great fun with the construction process ! and process is what we’re all about after all.
