Counting With “Ten Apples Up On Top”

This post may contain affiliate links.

My 3 year old, Love Bug,  is learning to count and can recognize most numbers, but still needs a bit of practice. Dr. Seuss’ Ten Apples Up On Top is the perfect book to reinforce these concepts.

I printed out some apples onto red paper.  If you don’t have red paper, print them on white and have your child color them.  If your child is working on their cutting skills, have him or her cut them out. I cut these for my son, as he has not yet mastered cutting curves and circles.

I took a picture of Love Bug and printed that out as well. Then I wrote the numbers on the apples, from 1 to 10.

His tasks were to put the numbers in order on the poster (a large piece of construction paper) and then glue them in place.

Then I wrote: “(child’s name) has 10 apples up on top!”
