Johnny Appleseed Crafts
Today we read about Johnny Appleseed and cut open a couple of apples to
"paint" with. We made a "hand print" apple tree and I sketched an apple and
Johnny himself for Princess to color.Princess also practiced writing "apple"
on apple shaped lined paper we printed from the computer.The links are in my last post.
I do not consider myself an expert, but several people
have asked me to post pictures of the crafts from start to finish.So here you are:
The first picture show Princess putting the states Johnny was known to start orchards in
back into her puzzle map.I used it to show her how far he walked (and sometimes canoed).
The next shows her looking at the cut up apples and then stamping away with them.
The next picture shows her ready to imprint her arm/hand to make the "tree".
We let it dry and then we had her use her fingertip dipped in red paint to make the apples.
Then we used fingertips and the paintbrush to make the leaves with green after the red dried.
Then she colored in the apple and Johnny I sketched because she asked for them.
The last picture is all our work displayed in our "school area".
I hope this is helpful.
