Apple Activities on Mom's Library + Giveaway

Happy Fall, Mom's Library friends! Is it fall in your part of the world? Do you get to don sweaters and watch the leaves change where you live? If you don't, put on your imaginary parka and join in anyway. Imagine the air getting a little crisper and the apples and pumpkins beginning to ripen. That's what is going on around here! The boys have been able to pick pumpkins from our own backyard this year. They've also been able to pick apples and pears. We really love the harvest time of year. It looks like we are not alone in our love of fall fruit. Last week on Mom's library, there were so many awesome apple activities linked up, I just had to featured them this week. We've been working on an Apple Unit at home, and I can't wait to add some of these great activities to our unit.
