Maida Heatter's Johnny Appleseed Bars
The kids thought these were pretty stellar. I thought they were a lot of effort for what they were. I will make them again but not while holding a baby. Pans had to go in and out of freezer and things had to be rolled and pressed and apples had to be peeled. I know where to improve for next time though. Slice those apples thin peoples!
We made apple art with chalk pastels. I seriously loved using this kind of medium. The blending was the exciting part. Warning: chalk pastels are super messy!
A collaborative effort was made on the Appleseed lapbook. Megan and Kate learned a lot about John Chapman and played this song on you tube about 10x. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_IrdS-zu48
Megan made apples, pumpkins and this cat.
