In addition to bringing this apple tree coloring page along for your next apple picking expedition, turn it into a puppet show! Cut out the apples, paste on craft sticks or straws and create a little story.
As I have done in the past, I tried my hand at creating a little ditty to go along with it. It’s based on the “5 little pumpkins” rhyme and when you read it you should be very, very nice to me and then ask your kids to make up their own which will be infinitely better!
