A Bushel of Apples to Play With

I loved my Mom’s crocheted apples so much that I had to make up some polymer clay ones!

These were so quick and easy to make.  Then, I let my kids play with them!

After I made my tiny apples, I made up this paper to use them with. 
I keep adding to my list of manipulatives for my children to play with.  There are so many ways for the kids to play with these.  They can sort them by color, do pattern work, use the above sheet and sort by numbers, etc.  I love this kind of stuff!

I'm joining the following fun parties; Its A Blog Party, Blue Cricket Design, Sew Much Ado, Just A Girl, ABC and 123,

These are adorable. My daughter is very into sorting and playing with any little thing that we have A LOT of. This would be perfect.

How adorable are these! I'd love to take a bunch of those little clay apples and turn them into a cute fall necklace :)

If you get a chance, I'd love for you to link to this on Not "Baaad" Sundays with LambAround!
