stART ~ Ten Apples Up On Top

A Story + Art = A Great stART!

Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our book and art project and maybe even share your own too! For an explanation of stART click here.


We read Ten Apples Up On Top!, by Dr. Seuss. This is a funny story about three friends that balance apples on their heads and will do anything to keep them there! This is one of Emily's favorite books at the moment. I thought it would be fun to make a picture of Emily with ten apples up on top.

Emily painted the backround of her picture with watercolors.
Emily glued a picture of herself onto the painting.

Emily added circle "apple" stickers on top of a picture of herself. Ten Apples on Top of Emily!

So cute! It really helps them relate better to the story line.

I've seen similar projects before, heck I even did one in my K class but I LOVE the addition of your daughter's sweet little picture. Great book and great 1:1 correspondence activity. Love stART, by the way what a clever name you picked too!

This is great project - I haven't read Ten Apples on Top with the younger kids yet - thanks for bringing it back to mind.

We linked in a little late, and sort of as an afterthought - but hope to better next time!

Love this project! We did it today after nap time. I have to say I love your site. I am a mom of two girls that works full time outside the home. Whenever I want to do an art project with the girls, I go to your site first. If you have not already considered it, you should publish a book of all these great crafts. Looking forward to more. THANK YOU!
