Dr Seuss's Ten Apples Up on Top Book and Fingerprint Apple Craft

My son loves the Dr Seuss Book Ten Apples Up on Top. He has the Bright and Early Board Books version (board book). It's so fun to hear him counting with so much excitement! To go along with the book, we did a fingerprint apple activity.

Ten Apples Up on Top Dr Seuss Book
I made our page by using photoshop to place a head shot of my son to the bottom of the page, add a red border, and the words '10 Apples Up On Top'. You could also just cut or print a photo and glue it to the bottom of a piece of paper.

2 years old

I dipped my son's thumb (or finger) into red paint and placed 10 apples on top of his cute, little head. He usually doesn't get into fingerprint/thumbprint art, but he loved counting all the red apples for this project! We accidentally got part of his hair on the photo wet but I am pleased with the way it turned out.

This is so cute, and perfect for this book! I was trying to get my little one to put her finger in the paint during our project, but she wasn't interested. I'll have to keep working on it for projects like this one.
