20 Interactive Ten Apples Up on Top Merriment's & FREEBIES!

Welcome to our 20 Interactive Ten Apples Up on Top Merriment's!

We have been having so much fun with our Apples Unit this September! 

One of our FAV segment's is our Ten Apples Up on Top book! Ever since my babes were in diapers, Ten Apples on Top has been a FAV part of our Apple Unit studies. 

When my babes got a bit older, after reading the story I had them stand in front of our yellow door and told them to point to the top of their head. Then I took their pictures, one after another. 

I loaded the pictures up on my computer, 

put them into a document,

and sized them to fit an 8 oz. yellow plastic party drink cup.
I glued each their pictures onto separate cups, one for each child:

They painted egg carton holders red:

and when they were dry, I used my trusty letter opener to poke a hole in the top of each egg cup and each yellow cup:

Using  wooden shish-a-bob skewers, I pushed  a skewer inside the top of the yellow cups. Then my babes TRIPPED around with Ten Apples Up on Top each of their heads: 

We counted, added and did a bit of "take away" subtracting.

  7. Many thanks for visiting, commenting & hosting the Share The Wealth Blog Hop, Lisa!!!
