Apple season is starting. Enjoy a family outing to pick a basket of crispy fruit and bring them home to make these easy apple recipes for kids. From no bake snacks to yummy desserts, the only thing you have to do is decide which one to make with your child!
The orchard’s trees seem to welcome us into their midst. Branches laden with fruit draw us closer. The boys run ahead chattering with excitement.
The three of them race from tree to tree looking for the right tree.
“This one Mom! This has the BEST apples.”
Little hands reach up and gently twist off the sweet apples.
Along the way there are giggles.
And the inevitable comparing of apples. Who has picked the biggest? Which one is the sweetest?
Finally there is that first juicy crunch of a freshly picked apple.
I relish the family time knowing that we are building memories. These ARE the good old days.
It’s been over 20 years since I went apple picking with my boys, but the memories of those outings stick with me. They form the mosaic of memories my boys carry with them.
