Here is Mena painting with an apple. We first read a book about apples and talked all about how they grow. I then cut an apple in half and we talked about the variouos parts. Mena ate one half of the apple for a snack and then we painted with the other half. At first she tried holiding it with her hands but we found it to be rather difficult. I decided to put a corn on the Cob holder in the apple and that solved the problem. She painted red first and then we let that dry. She then painted Yellow on top of it. I wanted her to do more colors but we both got a little bored after two times! It was lots of fun. Try it!
