apple recipes for children

Kids Chef Recipe

Stuffed Apple with Peanut Butter

What you need:

1 Apple
Peanut Butter or Cream Cheese

What you do:

Scoop out the core from an apple. Stuff with peanut butter or cream cheese and top with raisins or granola. Cut slices but don't cut all the way down.

Kids chef In the Kitchen
Have children cut a couple of apples into slices and bake, and simmer some apple slices. Let them discover the difference between raw, cooked and baked apples. Talk about the changes in color, texture and taste.

Apple Smile
Cut an unpeeled red apple into wedges. The wedges should look like a smile. Spread one side of an apple wedge with peanut butter. Add miniature marshmallow "teeth" along the edge. Spread another apple wedge with peanut butter. Place it on top of the marshmallows for a big, toothy grin.

Apple Cinnamon Ornaments
Mix equal amounts of store bought apple sauce and cinnamon and add 1 teaspoon of craft glue for every cup of applesauce.  Mix all the ingredients until you have a firm but wet dough. You can add small amounts of cinnamon if your dough is too wet.  (Directions and recipe card coming soon!)

Easy Apple Pies
Use pre-made biscuit dough. Have children roll out the dough and place spoonfuls of canned apple pie mix in the middle. Seal them up and bake. This makes a delicious and easy to make snack.

Apple animals

Dried Apple Rings
First, peel, core, and cut apples into chip-sized circles. Then, dip the circles in fresh lemon juice. Use a wire cutter to cut a clean, white-coated clothes hanger. Next, decorate the hanger with some apples made out of craft paper and add the apple rings. (Don't let the apple slices touch each other.) Finally, hang the apples in a dry, airy spot and let them dry for one to two weeks. Tip: Rotate the apples every day.


Applesauce (no cooking)
6 large apples
¾ cup water
sugar & cinnamon to taste

Peel, core, and have children cut apples into chunks with a plastic knife. Put water and a few chunks of apples in blender. Blend mixture and add remaining apple pieces. Add sugar and cinnamon to taste.


Witches Brew
Flavored gelatin
Apple juice
Gummy worms or raisins

Pour 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into a bowl. Add 2 cups boiling water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add one 6 ounce can unsweetened frozen apple juice concentrate.
Pour mixture into clear lightly greased plastic cups. Have children drop the worms and flys into the brew. Chill for a couple of hours.

A Trip To The Apple Orchard
There is no better way to learn about apples than to actually go to an apple orchard. Your children can see what a tree really looks like; pick, sort, wash and eat apples; make apple cider; learn about how food goes from farmer to the grocery store or market.
