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!

Miniature Candy-ish Apples

I call them candy-ish since they aren't dipped in caramel or that red sticky stuff. But they are mini and they are FUN! Here's what you need:

  • Apples (whatever kind you like)
  • Melon baller/scoop
  • Toothpicks
  • Dipping choices (peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, chocolate, etc)
  • Sprinkles

Here's what you do:

  1. After washing your apples, scoop the apples with the melon baller and stick a toothpick in the tops, so you can see the skin.
  2. While you are scooping, in small bowls, melt the chocolate, peanut butter, etc so it's at a good dipping consistency.
  3. Pour sprinkles on a separate plate.
  4. Holding the apples by the toothpick, let your kiddos dip the apples in the gooey yumminess and then in the sprinkles.
  5. Eat!!!! The favorite here was peanut butter!
    As you can see, she did not enjoy this at all. If you try this, what did your munchkin(s) like for dipping the most? You could also crunch up cereal or nuts instead of sprinkles!

What a fun idea! We are learning about "A" right now and apples too so this would be a great activity to put together w/ that!

OK...just completed and my 3.5 yo loved it. I put all of the dips, sprinkles and apple balls into a 6 cup muffin tin so it would be easy for him to handle. I used peanut butter, Nutella (delish), Redi-Whip, and sprinkles. His favorite was the Redi-Whip + sprinkles. Thanks for the cute idea!
