Apple picking can be a fun family activity, and there are plenty of kid-friendly recipes and activities you can enjoy with the apples you've picked. Here are some ideas:
Making apple pie from scratch can be a great family project. You can involve your kids in peeling and slicing the apples, and they can help assemble the pie.
This is an easier alternative to apple pie. It involves fewer steps and can be a fun way to introduce kids to baking.
Homemade applesauce is a healthy and delicious option. You can let your kids help with peeling and cutting the apples, and they can even help stir the sauce as it cooks.
Dip apples into caramel sauce and decorate them with nuts, sprinkles, or chocolate chips. Kids love making and eating these.
Slice apples thinly, sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar, and bake them until they're crispy. These make for a tasty and healthy snack.
If you have a juicer or access to a cider press, you can make your own apple cider. Kids can help wash and prep the apples.
This classic fall game is always a hit with kids. Fill a large bucket with water, float some apples in it, and have the kids try to grab them using only their mouths.
Apple Picking Scavenger Hunt
Create a scavenger hunt in your backyard or at the apple orchard. Give kids a list of apple-related items to find, such as the smallest apple, the largest apple, a leaf, or a twig.
Apple Juice Popsicles
Blend apples with a bit of water and sweetener to taste, pour the mixture into popsicle molds, and freeze for homemade apple popsicles.
These activities and recipes should keep your family entertained and well-fed after a day of apple picking. Plus, they offer valuable opportunities for kids to learn about food and cooking. And if you haven't gone picking just yet, bookmark this page, and check out our Apple Picking Crew tees below for the perfect outfit!
