One of M's favorite books lately has been The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall. The story watches an apple tree grow through all four seasons of the year, ending with two sisters turning the apples it grows into an apple pie.
For our go-along craft, M made an apple tree in all four seasons. We left the branches bare in winter, had white blossoms in spring, green leaves in summer, and red and yellow apples in fall. These were all made by fingerpainting, one of M's favorite things to do.
I am linking this post to stART (story + art = a great start) over at A Mommy's Adventures.
