Who doesn’t love a kid friendly apple taste test? This year I am thinking… pear taste test? Currently our food coop has 9 different kinds! First Published 10/2/09
In anticipation of our trip to the apple farm this weekend, Kiddo and I performed a taste test on 6 apples I bought at the farmer’s market. Kiddo likes charts and categories, so it was fun for him. Plus, as we have been reading a ton of apple books he has gotten into all the different apple names. He always wants to know what kind of apple I am giving him.
The set up: To keep Kiddo busy while I cut up the apples, I gave him stickers to label everything. Then I secretly wrote down the names of the apples to be revealed after the taste test.He chose either sweet or tart, crisp or soft, for each kind.

That Apple is Mine!
Our Apple Tree (my favorite of the myriad of “this is how an apple grows” books that are out there. It has less of the excruciating detail, which may not be of interest to the preschool set and has whimsical drawings.)
