Apple Slice Science!

What You Need:

  • Apple
  • Apple peeler
  • Lemon juice
  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • Plates

What You Do:

  1. Peel the skin off the apples and cut apple slices.
  2. Give your child one of the slices, two grapes, and two raisins. Have your child use the ingredients to create a happy face on the plate with the raisins for the eyes, the grapes for the nose, and the apple slice as the mouth. Talk about how a mouth looks when smiling to help your child turn the apple slice the correct way.
  3. Have your child show you what a sad face looks like. Give your child one of the slices, two grapes, and two raisins. Have your child use the ingredients to create a sad face on a second plate.
  4. Show your child how to sprinkle the lemon juice on the apples. Do not put any lemon juice on the sad face.
  5. After 15 minutes, come back and check on the snack. Ask your child what is the difference between the two snacks. Ask your child why one is brown and the other one is not. Have your child tell you which one they would like to eat.
  6. Have your child eat a slice of the apple that you did not use to make the faces. Then have your child eat the apple that you put lemon juice on. Ask if the apple with lemon juice on it tastes any different than the apple without lemon juice.
  7. When you are finished, enjoy a snack of apples, grapes, and raisins with your child!
