The warmer temperatures have been rolling in around our neck of the woods as August is coming to a close. And as September approaches, I am getting excited for Fall. I love all things fall, but one of my favorite things to do with the kids is Apple studies. So today I have gathered some fun printables, activities, books, sensory bin ideas and recipes for all things Apples!
