Ten Thumbprint Apples

This idea has been floating around in my head since my last blog post in June and I am so pleased we got a chance to give it a go today. Neevah still loves the book Ten Apples Up on Top (thankfully she has moved on to a different book for her bedtime story) and she thought this quick Art and Counting activity was a lot of fun.

You will need
Red Paint
Shallow Dish
Baby Wipes (great for cleaning up paint covered fingers)

To Make
1. Ask your child to draw a picture of themselves at the bottom of the paper
2. Put the red paint into a shallow dish
3. Let you child dip their thumb into the red paint and then place a thumbprint apple on top of their head
4. Count out loud as you add more and more apples up on top

How many apples can you get up on top?

She was very happy to have ten apples up on top just like the story
