Working together to create our friendship apple tree

In my previous post, I shared our sticky apple table and mentioned that each child selected a few apples from the sticky table to add to our friendship apple tree…

While the sticky table apples were happening at one table, the children were also painting our friendship tree at another table…

Mrs. Courtney mixed a little glue in the green paint so the apples would stick to the tree when we were ready…

The children worked together to paint both the top of the tree and the tree trunk. They used a small scraper to add a texture to our tree trunk as well…

We also added each child’s name to the apples so that every child would have their very own apple on the tree…

Because there was glue in the paint, the children were able to add their apple, stem and leaf to the tree before the paint dried and then we set the tree top and trunk aside to dry…

And once the apple tree was completely dry, we displayed it on the wall for all the children to see their names and to help us remember that we are part of a community…
