The story of Johnny Appleseed is so fun for younger children! Find a story at your local library. This one’s really cute:
Then, have your children pretend to be Johnny Appleseed! You can provide a pan for their heads, although it’s a little heavy. Or you can make one out of construction paper. Provide apple seeds for “planting,” apples of all colors for harvesting, and a basket for collecting apples in. It’d also be fun for you to be a villager wanting to buy some apples!
If you want to be more ambitious, make some applesauce in your crockpot! This is an easy recipe for children to help with!
