How to Make a Clove Apple (from “Little House”)

Today I’d like to share about the new literature unit study that we’ve started.  It’s on one of my favorite all-time book series:  The Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  We’re almost finished with the first book Little House in the Big Woods.  My girls (ages 4, 8, and 9) are enthralled!  My 6-year-old son is also listening in.

They’ve started a fun lapbook, we’ve sung some of the songs, and we made one craft so far.  It’s the clove apple that Ma’s sister-in-law gave her for Christmas.

  1. Did your kids have a hard time with the cloves? My kids have had a hard to handling them, so I wondered if there was a trick.
    Thanks so much for coming by and linking up! I hope to see you again next week.

    1. She didn’t have too much trouble with it. (She’s 9.). It might make a difference with the cloves and the apples–how strong they are, how soft the apple is?
