We compared different varieties of apples. We had more varieties, but my son ate them before we got to this.
We cut the apple in half to see the star inside and counted the seeds.
Then we used the apple halves to paint apple prints.
The girls made these tissue paper apple trees. They drew a tree trunk and colored it in. Then the took squares of green tissue paper, crumbled them into balls, dipped them in glue, and stuck them to the tree. Once that's covered, they used smaller red tissue paper squares the same way to make apples.
While the girls were working on their apple trees, Colin made apple brownies. I diced up the apples for him, but he did the rest. This was really good, much better than apple breads we've tried before. Even the two people in our family who don't usually like things like it had 2 pieces each.

|The recipe suggested drizzling caramel ice cream topping on it. We didn't have any, but had apple cinnamon topping so some of us tried that.|
