OF APPLEHEAD DOLLS & FALL
I've always liked the fall time of
year. The leaves turning color. The air fresh and crisp. The
harvests of pumpkins, squash, corn and other good things. The days
picking apples and turning them into the most delicious sauce! The
hot days of summer have faded into the more routine, cooler days of
Autumn. Seize these days before they slide into winter and enjoy a
myriad of activities and books with your children.
This time of year is always
a great time to study about the pilgrims, indians, and early
settlers. Because their lives revolved around so many interesting
activities, it is so much fun to include a few fun, educational
projects. Below you will find links to some websites to learn about
different activities and also some other ideas and books. Enjoy
them!! And enjoy your children!! They are only little once!!!
We always enjoy either picking or buying
different varieties of apples each fall. We make several trips to
enjoy the fresh, crisp flavors. Making applesauce is fun and the
taste is incredible - you'll never want store bought again. This
time of year we enjoy apple pies, crisp, turnovers and just plain
raw apples with a nice bowl of freshly popped corn.

Volume 3 has two stories of
Johnny Appleseed (along with stories of Sacagawea & others). That
is a wonderful set to have this time of year.
Making pumpkin pie from scratch
is a wonderful project for children. They can help scoop out the
seeds from a real pumpkin (then roast them) and cut up the flesh
into pieces to cook down to make their own pumpkin pie.
