September is a time for all things school! For many, it may even be their first day of school. We have a collection of back-to-school activities to help your child kick off their school year.

All About Me Activities

All about me activities teach your child about themselves and the world around them. They can help a child develop their self-awareness, self-esteem, and social skills.

Help your child learn to express themselves and showcase all the things that make them unique. You see this topic at school because it also builds a strong sense of community in a child’s classroom.

Apple Activities

Apples are a great topic this September for young children to learn about because they are:

  • A healthy snack that is high in fiber and vitamin C.
  • Easy to grow and can be grown in many different climates.
  • A versatile fruit that can be eaten fresh, cooked, or made into juice or cider.
  • A fun fruit to learn about through activities such as apple picking, applesauce making, and apple pie baking.

Learning about apples can help young children develop their knowledge of the world around them, their appreciation for nature, and their healthy eating habits.
