Fall is here and the time for apple harvesting is upon us! Today, I’ve rounded up some great apple recipes and activities! So get baking, crafting, and enjoying the abundance of apples this year!
This is my recipe and it’s SO delicious!
“This recipe is easy to make. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker and let it go. It is great for small batches of apples and when you don’t want to spend all day canning.”
My FAVORITE apple crisp! This doesn’t last long at all!
“Warm apple crisp made with old fashioned oats, fresh fall apples, spiced perfectly and drizzled with caramel sauce. This double layer apple crisp is to die for and tastes even better on the second day when all the juices are released slightly into the oat topping.”
“Cooking with kids is one my favorite joys of homesteading and living a simple life. Spending time in the kitchen with my family brings back memories of my childhood.”
“This recipe is a hit with my family every time I make it, so I thought I would share. It has a delicious apple and spice flavor and just the right amount of ‘Crisp’.”
“Looking for a new snack to add to your weekly menu? Try dehydrated apple slices! I LOVE this simple snack and so do the kids.”
“This year our children will be learning all they can about video production. We’ve begun with Emily because her passion is easily captured on film. She loves to cook and bake and, honestly, she’s amazing at it.”

“When I taught preschool, I loved to do an apple theme in September. I would definitely have loved these apple math printables to use with my preschoolers, and I’d have loved to use them with my own kiddos when I was homeschooling them through the younger grades.”
“September is a great time to study apples. It’s a like a little fall kick-off. Apples signify back-to-school, too. I’ve scoured the internet for you, and compiled a large list of resources you can use to create the perfect Apple Unit Study for your kiddos!”

“Can you just tell…I love the fall! One of my favorite activities to do with the children is to go apple picking. I love picking apples because it is easy and fun…”
“The fall book Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington is the delightful story of Annie, a young woman who owns an apple farm and sells her products at the farmer’s market in the city. The book has bright, colorful illustrations that appeal to younger children as well as simple text making it an ideal read aloud.”

“Preparing activities for an elementary apple-themed unit doesn’t have to be complicated. These fun, hands-on activities are easy to pull together and are sure to be a hit with all children! They work well with apple units, Johnny Appleseed Day on September 26, and National Apple Month in October.”
“The family and I went apple picking this week. It’s just a good fall thing to do.”
“As the days grow shorter and mornings grow cooler we know it’s time for our favorite family tradition. Apple picking. The time spent together within the orchards are some of the best memories we carry. But that’s just the beginning. The bushel we bring home contains a whole other set of family togetherness.”
“With the weather being SO beautiful in Wisconsin, we spent as much time outside as possible. Each afternoon, we took a walk through the neighborhoods near the hotel. One afternoon, we came upon a yard full of apples.”
