This time of year, of course brings us to the cider mill… or I should say mills. I believe Johnny Appleseed would be pleased to find the acres of orchards in our community. We’ve already visited 3 different cider mills in our area, drank gallons of cider, eaten dozens of warm donuts, and picked bags of apples. We’ve made apple pie, apple crisp and apple bread. We’ve made apple stackers and still need to make some carmel apples. Yum!
This week we are working on Week Six of our Harvest Time unit. I will be posting a weekly update to give everyone a space to chat about the program. If you would like more information about the program you can learn more and download the free homeschooling curriculum on our Harvest Time page. All of the directions for the art projects, recipes and activities are included in the curriculum guide. If your family is participating in the Harvest Time curriculum either for homeschooling or after school enrichment we would love to hear about it! Please leave a comment in this post in regards to your experiences with Harvest Time’s Week Six activities. You are welcome, and highly encouraged to leave links to your Harvest Time’s Week Six blog posts or pictures in the comment section of this post.
