Ten Apples Up On Top (one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books) is a great book for teaching so many early learning skills and having fun at the same time. The Apple #2 die from my Calendar Set is the perfect one for creating this fun creative artistic project while enforcing skills at the same time. These kinds of projects and plans are my favorites because, well…I love to craft up creative stuff.

I used watercolor paper so I could paint in my color but you could also use any thick white paper with crayons.
Next I added TEN apples up on top. The kids can glue them all on. They could number them 1-10. I chose to keep it interactive and a “game” type thing.
I cut the apples for decorative red papers. They can then also be used for the following skills:
