Recipe for Fun!

Trace 26 apples onto paper and write the same uppercase and lowercase letter on each. Have an adult cut out the shapes and punch a hole in each apple. Using pipe cleaners or string, tie the apples to low-hanging tree branches. Then, depending on your child’s learning level, have them pick individual letters or letters that make up whole words.
