Ten Apples Up On Top

Ten Apples Up On Top by Dr Suess,A hilarious story in rhyme about a number of animals who could carry 10 apples on their heads.

After reading the book we colored a tree with melted crayon wax,the kids were probably a little too young for this but I think they did a great job.

They were supposed to add ten apples but I think they got carried away as you can see.

Then they colored a color by number picture found at Make Learning Fun.

This is a great felt set that I ordered from Glitter Felt Stories.
