After reading the story, we made our own apple trees. We simply painted a paper plate green. I had the girls cut out “apples” out of red paper, and they stuck them in the wet paint. After letting that dry, I cut a slit in a paper towel tube and stuck the plate in. I actually had to cut my plate too because it was a plate with a rim. This tree can be a reminder of patience.
Confession: While working on this project I completely lost my patience with the kids.
