Apples, Acorns & Animals...Oh My!

We have recently started doing some "activities" with Little Bit. Last month I tried to do some things with the letter A. Our main focus was on apples, acorns, and animals. Basically I'm trying to do things that correspond with the seasons...that are fun and also educational!

string a necklace....apples cut out from patterned paper, colored straws cut into 4ths, pipe cleaners cut and spiraled, lacing.

apple plate...red construction paper cut into small pieces and glued onto a paper plate.
acorn hunt...searching the back yard for fallen acorns, then using tongs to transfer from plate to a bowl

little people animals....just a fun time to focus on different animals and their sounds

puzzle time...we have several wooden animal puzzles that Little Bit loves working on {including these from Melissa & Doug...farm cube puzzle and bear dress up!}

apple slices {plain, with nutella or peanut butter}
apple bars {nurti-grain or kashi}
animal crackers
