Rosh Hashanah Apple Sorting for Kids

apple activity

The apple is a sweet symbol of the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah. If you have kids, helping them to prepare for the holiday means making the symbols and stories accessible to a young learner. Encourage your child to learn about this holiday while developing valuable problem-solving and reasoning skills. How can a holiday kids’ activity also help your little learner with their cognitive skill development? Check out this easy apple sorting idea!

Materials Needed

  • Card stock paper
  • Red, yellow and green tempera paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Markers
  • Scissors

How-To Steps

  1. Draw apple-shaped circles onto the card stock paper with a marker. If your child is struggling to draw a circle, use the bottom of a can (a soup can or similarly sized can will do) or a cut out cardboard shape as a template to trace.
  2. Cut out the circles.
  3. Paint the circle apples. Divide the shapes into three piles. Have your child paint one pile yellow, one red and one green. Let the paint dry completely.
  4. Mix the colorful apples up.
  5. Have your child sort the apples, creating piles by color.

You can extend the activity by using real apples. Buy different varieties of apples and have your child sort them by color or characteristic. When you’re done sorting the apples (the real ones), cut them and dip the fruit into honey!
