3 Apple-Licious Activities for Your Family This FallPosted on September 9, 2021 by Ladybug Child Care Center
Our major theme for September is apples! What could be better for this time of the year? Apples are a big part of the festivities and aesthetic of fall, and we’re excited to share fun activities with all of the little bugs this month.
But the fun doesn’t have to be limited to our classrooms. Your family can have fun with apples, too! Here are a few ideas for this fall…
1) Apple Orchards
The classic family fall activity! Kids love picking apples, going on hayrides, and dancing to fun music—What better place than an orchard?! Here are a few awesome options near us:
- U-Pick Apple Harvest Season at Minnesota Harvest in Jordan, MN
- Fall Harvest Orchard in Montrose, MN.
- Deardorff Orchards in Waconia, MN.
- Luceline Orchard in Watertown, MN
- Emma Krumbee’s Apple Orchard and Barn in Belle Plaine, MN
2) Bite-Sized Caramel Apples
Little ones love caramel apples, but they can be a lot. Sometimes the apples are too big to finish and have way more sugar than anyone needs. That’s why bite-sized caramel apple treats are the perfect alternative!
It’s simple: You just take a ball-shaped fruit cutter and cut tiny portions of apple. Then, you put popsicle sticks in each apple ball, dip them in caramel, and cover them with whatever toppings you’d like! Everyone gets a fun-sized treat without a tummy ache or wasting any food.
3) Apple Hunting
It’s like an Easter egg hunt, but with apples! Hide apples in various places throughout your home and let the little bugs search for them. This activity could even tie into activity #2. Once all the apples have been found, you can start making yummy treats with them!
