Have you been apple picking yet this year? We go every single fall – it’s one of my favorite family traditions. We like to read Apple Picking Time, and then we head on out to the orchard and collect as many apples as we possibly can.
This year when we went, it was hotter than it should be in the fall, and we didn’t grab nearly as many apples as we typically do, but we grabbed enough to make a few yummy apple recipes (like waffles and muffins and pies…. mmmm).
And we hung out long enough for me to get all the fall photos I wanted too! There really isn’t much prettier than an apple orchard in the fall for getting photos of your kids.
If you’re considering going to the orchard with your crew, check out this sweet little mini-book I made for Little Miss. It’s a read-and-write book, so your child will fill in the missing words on each page, and color the pictures.
We taped all the pages together like an accordion book with the apples on the front and back, so it folds up cute behind the apple. It’s a simple fun project to do before heading out to pick apples! Pair it with Apple Picking Time, and How Do Apples Grow? for a fun little unit study!
