We love eating apples all year round. What we really love is going to the orchard and picking apples in the fall. We look forward to this outing all year long. A wonderful way to spend a sunny fall day outside with the family. Speaking of outside fun, today we are happy to be participating in the Outside Play Blog Hop – this month’s theme is APPLES! You might remember we took part in the Outside Play Blog Hop before; sidewalk chalk and weekday hopscotch. This month we found a fun way to play outside with apples.
First, I made 2 apple shaped bean bags.
Simply cut out 2 apple shaped pieces of red jersey. Pin wrong sides together and stitch together, leaving a 1″ hole at the top of the apple.
Pour rice into the opening, filling the bag halfway full. Slip a 3″ piece of green ribbon or rick-rack into the top of the apple…creating the stem. Finish sewing up the opening.
The kids toss the apple bean bags onto the apple targets. The kid with the most points wins…or just play for the fun of it, like we did.
The girls had a great time playing this game. I can see how this game can be moved inside easily on rainy days. We love versatile crafts and games.
Now, it’s time for the Blog Hop and link up. Please be sure to check out how all of these other amazing blogs have been playing outside with apples…I can’t wait to see what everyone has been doing.
