30+ Apple Activities and Books: Kid's Co-op

One of my favorite parts of fall is visiting the apple orchard. In fact, we went three different times last year. Since it's not possible to visit every day (though we'd like to), we read lots of apple books and do lots of apple crafts instead. The Kid's Co-op has been full of fun ideas for crafts, sensory play, and learning activities with an apple theme that kids will love.

More than 30 kid's crafts, sensory play ideas, and learning activities with an apple theme.
