Ten Apples Up On Top Craft (Dr. Seuss Book & Craft)

LB(4) and LL(2) had a lot of fun when we read this cute Dr. Seuss book for the first time.
It did take a while to get through the book since LB wanted to count the apples on every. single. page. :) 
But hey. Good counting practice built right into a great book. Nicely done Dr. Seuss!
After we read we made a simple little craft to go along with the book. Check it out!


Prep Work:
  1. Using the craft foam, cut out the pieces to the tiger face:
    • 1 big orange cirlce (face)
    • 2 small half circles (ears)
    • 4 small triangles (stripes)
    • 1 small circle (nose)

2.  Using the red construction paper, cut out 10 apple shapes:

  • I folded the paper into 4ths and traced 3 apples shapes on top. Then I cut them out that way. :)

All done. Time for the fun!

Book & Craft!
  1. Sit down with your child and read the Dr. Seuss book, "Ten Apples Up on Top."

2. After you read, give your child the tiger pieces you cut out and have them put together the tiger face:

  • Glue the orange circle at the bottom of a piece of cardstock.
  • Then glue the ears on, the stripes on the side of the face, the eyes and nose on.
  • Draw a smile on with a marker

3. Glue the other piece of cardstock to the top of this one.
4. Then give your child the apples and have them glue them on as they count them up to 10.

All done!
LB & LL had fun working together to make this craft. They took turns putting the apples on  and were so proud to see their creation when finished!

Have Fun!
