|Apple Number Tree Posters are a fun way to teach preschoolers numbers and 1:1 correspondence. Because of the art involved, fine and gross motor skills are improved. These posters are part of the 2 Year Curriculum and available in the 2 Year Workbook or the Basic 2 Year Curriculum.|
Apple Rubber Stamp (similar to this one)
Fingerprint - Stamp a fingerprint on the tree and draw a leaf and stem.

This idea came from Teresa. Thank you for sharing!
To add further learning to the Apple Tree Posters, decorate each tree with different art media.
#1 - color with crayons
#2 - colored pencils
#3 - markers
#5 - fingerpaint
#6 - glue corresponding construction paper shapes (leaves, trunk, basket)
#7 - tear and paste tissue paper
#8 - dot paints or outline the tree and basket with a black crayon and then paint with a mixture of corn syrup (very little needed), water, and food coloring
#9 - cut and glue construction paper squares
#10 - watercolors
#11 - glue items found on a nature hike
#12 - glue on macaroni or other noodles (dye the noodles for extra color)
#13 - cover with material or felt pieces
#14 - paint with shaving cream and food coloring
#15 - paint using q-tips
The apples were added when the paint had dried. (The only problem I encountered was the stickers having more difficulty sticking to the paint. They could be reinforced with glue though.) The children enjoyed the activities and when it was all done, not only did they have a number book to count with, but it was also an appealing keepsake of artwork!

ABCJesusLovesMe is an educational ministry that equips adults with the materials needed to be intentional in educating children. To do this, ABCJesusLovesMe designed five comprehensive, research-based curricula for ages 1-5 that focus on academics, development, and Bible learning through play. Additionally, a Sunday School curriculum, unit studies, digital downloads, and the Be Intentional Planner accompany the core curricula. These materials are sufficient on their own, but the heart of ABCJesusLovesMe is to offer guidance, support, and direction to make your educational efforts at home, preschool, or church successful.
