We used an apple bowl for snack time! The kids were excited to be able to eat their entire snack – container and all. We fill ours with pineapple yogurt. You could really mix any fruit into the yogurt, or put granola or trail mix into your apple!
Making An Apple Bowl
- 1 apple per person (we used golden delicious)
- yogurt (we used plain Greek yogurt)
- knife and spoon
Slice the top off of the apple. Then cut the core out of the apple. I took a spoon and went around the apple, hollowing it out more so it would fit more yogurt.
I chopped up the pineapple and mixed it with the yogurt, and then filled the hole in the apple with the yogurt. I put some pineapple on top of the yogurt.
Making Apple Prints
The yummy yellow-ness of this snack made us think about all the different – and delicious – colors of apples. We used yellow, green, red, and pink paint. Cut an apple in half to use as a stamp. We also stuck a popsicle stick into the apples because my kids didn’t want to get paint on their hands (but that part it totally optional!).
Then we stamped laid out a long strip of paper, and got stamping! They stamped the apples into the paint, and onto the paper. They used different colors, different amounts of paint, mixed the paint, and tried different pressures (and started to try to “throw print” – but I felt like that was more of an outdoor activity!
They realized (eventually!) that if they stamped the apple onto the scrap paper first, getting rid of some of the globs of paint, that their print would be more of a recognizable apple shape.
