Five Minute Food Art Friday-Apple CarsApple Cars! A quick and easy food art project for today-one of my favorites! These easy apple cars could be used with any story involving cars or transportation (Apple trains? Apple airplanes? So many options). The story I chose is "Let's Go For a Drive" by Mo Willems. I love the Elephant and Piggie books mostly because I love the back and forth conversations between Elephant and Piggie. This book is especially fun because it follows a pattern that children will recognize quickly, and has such quotable phrases as "drive, drive, drivey, drive, drive".

Tips and tricks-
*Cutting the apple into slices is a grown up's job!
* Depending on the age of your child, most children can poke the toothpicks through. This is easier if the apple slices are turned on their sides first. and the toothpick is pushed through towards the table. As with all sharp objects, supervise the use of toothpicks, but encourage your child to do as much of the work as possible-they may surprise you!
You are making memories, not masterpieces!!
