Rosh Hashanah Apple Activities for Kids
Dipping apples in honey is a Rosh Hashanah tradition your kids will eagerly enjoy. Instead of a simple snack, turn this edible holiday idea into a true sensory experience with these fun-filled family activities!
Apple Taste Test
Can your child tell the difference between a red delicious, gala, or other apples? Cut slices of several different apples and place each on its own plate. Ask your child to try a bite of each apple on its own—and then with honey. Discuss how each apple tastes. You may need to help your child use new vocabulary words (such as bitter or crisp) to describe the fruit.
Give your child a large plate or tray to use as a canvas for this edible art project. Slice several different colors of apples and pour the honey into a small-sized bowl. Your child can arrange the apple slices on the plate or tray, creating their own artsy design. Use a spoon to drizzle honey across or around the apples. After they’re done creating, your child can eat their edible apple art.
Easy Apple Tart
Your little chef can no-bake their very own apple and honey tart for the holiday. Crumble graham crackers or vanilla wafers into a bowl. Add a layer of sliced apples and a drizzle of honey. Top with a sprinkle of more graham cracker or cookie crumbs.
