We had just come from the grocery store where I asked the girls to grab 6 apples as I gathered other produce items.
"What kind?" G asked.
"I usually get Gala, Fuji, or Honey Crisp," I replied.
They returned to the cart a minute later, "Can I get a Golden Delicious too?"
"Sure." As she reached to add it to the bag of apples she had already gathered, I explained that it needed to go in a separate bag because the apples would be weighed at the register and they all cost different amounts.
"Oh. Well... there are two Galas, two Fujis, and two Honey Crisps in that bag already." :)
So we reorganized the apples into their own bags and decided to have a little taste-test when we got back to the house.
They devised a scoring rubric and were very thoughtful about rating each variety. Each of the three had a different favorite and they all ran outside to play in the fall sunshine with full bellies. So simple; so fun!
