Flexibility is one of the best parts of having my kiddos home all day, and after hitting the studies hard the past three weeks, we took a day to change pace and go on a “field trip.”
Our annual trip to the apple orchard came a bit early this year, and it was so hot and humid we didn’t last long. But the apples were fresh, the fried pies were delish, and the mini-break and fresh air was welcomed.
Since we spent quite bit of time on the apple theme last year, I wasn’t planning to include it in this year’s unit studies. But there’s always time for an art project!
It was a simple project, beginning with an apple template and apple-colored tempera paints. After explaining the vision I had for the project, I let the kids have free-rein and was pleasantly surprised to see how many directions the project took. One simple template, so many uses!
