Summer reading-Ten Apples up On Top! by Dr. Seuss- learning Activity

We have been reading tons of books lately. Today my daughter chose Ten Apples Up On Top, by Dr. Seuss. After reading, I decided we could make a learning activity.
Materials needed:
Craft paper
Laminate sheet (I chose to laminate everything) you don't have to
-Magnet tape
-Craft paper

Draw a  few apples, and color. Once finished, draw your lion, tiger and dog. I used yellow craft paper, so figured I wouldn't color them. After doing this, add your paper with apples, and the one with each character to your laminate sheet.

 Once you have laminated both sheets of paper, cut everything out. When you're all done with cutting each of them out, using some magnetic tape cut them into small squares.

Apply magnet tape to each apple, and character. We used my daughters Art easel, which has a magnetic chalk board. (My husband made it)

Now that you're done, have some fun with counting the apples!
My daughter loved this activity. (I did as well)

Happy Counting!
