10 Apples Up on Top

Materials: construction paper; green, red, and yellow crayon, marker or paint; photo of your child or a self portrait drawn by them; 10 apples either cut outs or drawn by your child

Activity: Have your child color or paint the apples. If your child is able have them number the apples 1-10 (otherwise you can do this step for them). Cut your construction paper in half lengthwise and glue together the two pieces to make a strip. Glue your child's photo or self-portrait at the bottom of the strip. Have your child glue the apples on top of their head (or if you have a younger child you can help with this step). Display at their level and count the apples as you point to the numbers!

This activity is inspired by Ten Apples Up On Top! by Dr. Seuss
