stART - A Was Once an Apple Pie

We have finished up our farm theme and transitioned into Apple (fall)... We read Edward Lear's A Was Once an Apple Pie adapted by Suse MacDonald.... it is very colorful and goes through the alphabet in a tongue twister sort of way...fun to read and fun to listen to...

I went with the obvious choice this week when planning our project...we made mini apple pies...the girls really look forward to Wednesdays (Baking/Cooking day in K4)...

Putting the pie crust in the pan... I got the girls miniature pie plates for baking this year to make it even more fun ....
Pouring in the apples... I had the girls mix their "filling" in a ziplock bag... less mess...and the apples get coated really well..
Adding Crumb Topping...

Would you mind sharing your recipe? I'm what you'd call "domestically challenged", but I'd like to try this with my 3 yr old:-) Thanks

YUM - I really have to get cooking with my 2 year old but he's too small to reach the surface standing on anything we have
