This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!

Apple Books

Last year, Raegan posted with some ideas for some good Fall books. I wanted to add a few fun Apples/Fall books I have come across recently.

Piglet's Fall Day
I couldn't find this on Amazon, which means it is a harder book to find. If you can find it in your library, it is a cute little book about Piglet and Fall. My kids have all loved the Pooh series books when little.

The Apple Orchard (A Visit to...) by Patricia J. Murphy
This book is on Amazon, but out of stock right now. This book has full color photographs that explain a visit to the apple orchard. This is a great book if you can't make it to a real orchard. It would also be a great book to read before you visit to introduce concepts and after you visit to reinforce concepts.

Johnny Appleseed
There are many, many versions of the tale of Johnny Appleseed out there. We borrowed two from the library that were both quite different. I noticed several in Brayden's book club order this Fall. I have linked to all Johnny Appleseed Children's books on Amazon so you can browse through and see if there is one that looks best for your child.

Apples and Pumpkins (Stories to Go!) by Anne Rockwell

I think this is my favorite find this Fall. I loved that it combined the apple and pumpkin themes. It goes through fall activities you do with your family.

The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons

Okay, this one is also a favorite. It shows a tree through all seasons of the year. Every so often, a page has a box with extra information. For this reason, it makes it a great book for the younger crowd as well as the older. You can keep it simple or add more info.

Apple Countdown by Joan Holub
This is a fun new book about counting things around the apple farm.
