I made the tree trunk and tree top out of felt by free hand cutting out the shapes. The top would've looked better if I'd found a template and traced it, but I was in a hurry when I made it. Why was I in a hurry, I have no idea now! Isn't that always the case?
The apples are also made of felt and are just circles cut out of red felt. Nothing too fancy here, but I think it's a fair representation and I told ER to use her imagination. She probably has no idea what that means, but she answered me so solemnly, "Yes mama," when I told her that.
The picture cards were made with clip art that I printed onto cardstock. Then I laminated them and stuck a piece of velcro on the back so it'd stay put on the board. The felt pieces stick together without anything extra to help them.
Here is the song we sing: 5 Little Apples
Three little apples hung on a tree
As we sing each verse I put up the corresponding picture card and we remove one red apple. ER enjoys singing and doing it herself now. She just gets the order mixed up a bit.
