Fine Motor Apple Activity

If you have yet to do our applesauce writing tray activity, first tape a brown stem and green leaf to the platter so that it resembles an apple.

Next, add a couple of small pre-packaged containers of applesauce to the platter.

Dump several dried black beans into the applesauce.

Provide your child the tweezers and encourage him/her to use the tweezers to pick up the "apple seeds."

As your child picks up the seeds with the tweezers, count the number of seeds.  This is a great way to sneak in some math skills, too!
