Gross Motor Apple Activity for Toddlers and Preschoolers
This time of year, it is all about apples in preschool. My 3 year old is learning all about red, apples, and circles in his class. We pulled those concepts into our play with this fun apple tree activity. I placed this set up on our living room floor and had the kids pick ‘apples’. We counted them as we put them into baskets. My 5 year old loves writing when I spell out a word, and so we worked on writing the words “red”, “apple”, “circle”, and “tree”. She was “in charge” of simple math ideas (We have two apples in the basket. Adding one more apple makes 3 apples).
The babies loved putting the red balls into baskets, taking them back out and then putting them into a different basket. They are learning through exploring!
We did some Gross Motor balance beam play on the “trunk” of the tree. This was a hit for all of the kids. These babies WATCH the big kids and try their hardest to keep up!
