Make this Apple Picking Activity for your toddler to practice fine motor skills and number recognition. Such a fun fall activity!
We’ve been picking apples (well paper apples) here at home and counting to 12! It’s been so fun! This really makes me want to drink a cup of hot apple cider or bake an apple crumble.
But, it is way too hot still! Can the cool weather come early this year?!
I made this activity for my daughter (who is 2) to practice her fine motor skills. It morphed into a counting activity for my son (who is 4) to recognize numbers 1-12. It’s apple-picking fun for both kiddos! Yay!
We also read 10 Apples Up on Top. We set aside numbers 11 and 12. As I read the story, my son would find the number I was reading about in the apple pile and then match it up with the number in the tree.
I can’t wait until we actually go out and pick real apples! It will really tie this entire activity together!
