Today, take a "health" day today and have laugh with the "apple" of your eye.
Is there an apple orchard near by? Go pick some apples.
No orchard? Try a farmers market or the grocery store.
Look at the apples. Discuss the color with your kids. Maybe get 2-3 different kinds/colors and discuss the colors, tastes, and textures.

I suggest apple print bags.
You will need:
paper lunch sacks
knife (only adults should handle knives)
red, green, and yellow paints
What to do:
- Lay down newspaper on the work area.
- Put kids in art smocks.
- Cut the apples--in half long ways or around (around makes a star)
- Lightly paint the apple or dip in paint
- Print it onto a bag.
- Let dry.
Now what will you do with all those delightful little bags?
Well, fill them with goodies and take them to neighbors, of course!
I suggest Caramel Apples because the apple would fit so nicely in one of the sacks and they are fun to make (click here to make these wonder"fall" caramel apples).
