We have been studying apples in our Pre-K homeschool lessons. Today we all got involved in a fun cooking project that tied in perfectly! After playing a game of “Pass The Apple” (hot potato only with an apple) some fresh warm applesauce did the trick as a great snack!

The kiddos all got to help and the olders can follow this recipe almost by themselves!

The hardest part about making anything apples is the peeling, coring and slicing. However, with this gizzmo…Victorio VKP1010 Apple and Potato Peeler, Suction Base. It was fast and easy!!!!!

You don’t have to be a super hero to peel apples, but it sure helps! haha
