This week’s theme for The Virtual Book Club for Kids is a great one for early fall Apples. If we’re honest it’s one of our favourite fall themes as it doesn’t seem to matter where you are in the world fall and apples always go together. This year we’ve chosen the book Ten Apples Up On Top! by Dr Seuss as our featured book although as always there are alternatives suggested below. So here we go this week’s activity plan for preschoolers for apple week.

Apple Week Activities for Preschoolers

Each week when we make up these plans we try and find a set of 5 simple activities that work on sensory or imaginative play, learning letters and names, basic math concepts from shapes to colours and counting, a recipe or science whichever fits the topic best and then a craft or art project to round everything up.

From these activities, you can pick to do the ones that you have time for or you can do all of them.

How you set up your week is up to you. One of our team does an activity per day and suggests the format below. Another cohost only has the children at home for 1 day so picks 2 or 3 activities to do with them then.

If you are looking for more activities then at the bottom you will find our Apple Week Pinterest board where we have been busy finding fun activities that your little ones will love.

Sensory Activity Inspired by Ten Apples Up On Top!

This week we think it would be fun to create an apple pie cloud dough sensory bin for the week.

Cloud dough is so easy to make and it’s moldable which means you can use it like sand. But, you can also pour, scoop and measure it to.

Apple Alphabet Activity for the Week

We’re punching letters for this week’s alphabet activity.

Whether you work on names or letters it’s up to you. This is a great activity for preschoolers as it works on fine motor skills at the same time as learning the alphabet.

Ten Apples Up on Top Math Activity for Preschoolers

This fun apple picking math game is ideal to help children count.

You could write the numbers on the apples or why not draw dots so that your preschoolers can count then out if they aren’t at the point of number recognition yet.

Science/STEM Activity for Apple Week

With the balancing of the apples on the heads of the characters in the story. We have a fun STEM activity for apple week (if you are after a recipe, do check out our Pinterest board below as we have some easy fun recipes to cook with the kids there)

Apple Art & Craft

We love rounding up our apple week with the simpliest of apple art activities. Apple Printing!
