Sometimes a blog post comes across my path, and I am blown away by the creativity of the one who inspired it. This post is more of an incredible lesson plan than a craft, but does involve some ‘crafty’ things. Apple-onia is a tool that this mom uses to help her children create a story, solve problems, explore emotions as well as the science and nature of apples, and finally, solve puzzles. I encourage you to read all 6 posts on her blog so you can see the entire journey that Apple-onia went on with this adorable family. The first post from The Nature of Grace is where you can get an overview. Click here, the Applo-onia link, to pull up all the posts from the week. You will not be disappointed, and you will be inspired to do something this creative with your children!
