Littles Learning Link Up: Apple Fun Round Up- 70+ Apple Themed Ideas

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (at the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children.
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

I don't know about your neck of the woods, but around here there has been a definite nip in the air. I can't believe autumn is right around the corner. Time to bring out the warmer clothes, turn on the furnace, and start thinking about fall crafts (of course). I decided that Apples would be an appropriate theme for this month's round up. Apples tend to be associated with Back to School and Fall. When I asked my fellow bloggers to share their apple ideas, I was overwhelmed with the response. There are so many good ideas out there, from crafts and activities to recipes. So, if you are looking for apple-themed ideas, you have stopped by the right place.
