Add in food coloring. We seperated our dough into 3 parts. I colored one part red, one part green, and left one part cream color.

Add enough food coloring to get the color you are looking for. You can make red delicious apples, granny smith green apples, golden delicious yellow apples, or mixed color Jazz apples too.

Now I encouraged my kids to form the dough into an apple shape. Not only is kneading and rolling the playdoh good for strengthening hand muscles and getting some important sensory and tactile play, but it is great for building confidence and having fun with an apple theme activity too.

WE also made just a plain green apple and used buttons to decorate our apple. THis was lots of fun for my youngest learners and could also be used for an apple counting activity.  You could also do buttons of different colors to make addition equations with Kindergaten and first graders. Like 2 blue buttons plus 3 white buttons equals 5 buttons altogether.
