Preschoolers and young kids with enjoy these apple-themed activities that are inspired by the book Ten Apples Up on Top.

Children can enjoy reading Ten Apples Up On Top which is one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books and then have fun counting and learning numbers. Even though the book only counts to 10 your preschooler or kindergartner can count to whatever number they want to until they run out of apples :). Apples are such a fun theme for kids. Check out all our Apple Activities here.

Directions:

To set up the activity I used chalk markers to color apples and numbers on the unifix cubes. At first I tried using washable dry erase markers but the numbers kept coming off easily when touched so I switched to the chalk markers. If you don’t have a set of them yet they are so cool because they can be used on lots of surfaces to make activities without ruining your classroom materials.

Since Little Tiger (age 4 at the time of this activity) was able to count to 10 already I made the numbers 1-20 using the white unifix cubes as the apples and the brown and green unifix cubes as part of the tree.

Once the activity was set up I had her put the unifix cubes in order starting with 1. She liked stacking them up (as you can probably tell from the picture). The best part was that she was learning to recognize each number and put them in order without worrying she would make a mistake because she was having fun!
