Art In A Suitcase

Younger Children - All About Apples

 

Meet Mac, Milton, Jonathan and Granny. The apple suitcase introduces the science, folklore and taste of this popular and healthy fruit. For example, the children learn that in ancient Greece tossing an apple to a girl was a proposal and catching it an acceptance. Of course the story of Johnny Appleseed is told. The suitcase is packed with apple art, including a rosy-cheeked apple doll.

At the hour's end, everyone draws apple pictures and makes an apple book.

Ages preschool and up.
