APPLE MAN'S SECRET

Submit your apple ideas!!

Sarah loved having Grandma come to visit. They always had fun making things together.

Today, Sarah helped Grandma pick apples from the old apple tree, and together they made two large apple pies and ten small jars of applesauce. When they were done, they had one large apple left.

"I know," said Grandma. "Let's make an Apple Man."

Grandma got some whole cloves and some toothpicks. She showed Sarah how to stick the cloves into the apple to make two eyes, a nose and a mouth. Then she showed Sarah how to stick toothpicks into the apple to make arms for the Apple Man.

Sarah was delighted with her new apple friend. They played together for the rest of the day. Sarah even took Apple Man upstairs when she went to bed. And before she fell asleep, she shared a secret with her apple friend.

Sarah had a new baby brother. His name was Andrew, and her parents were bringing him home from the hospital tomorrow.

In the morning, Sarah told Grandma about sharing her secret with Apple Man.

"You know what?" said Grandma. "Apple Man has a secret, too. He has a secret inside of him that he would like to share with you."

Sarah loved secrets. What could it be? Grandma took out a knife, and cut Apple Man in half across the middle. And there inside was Apple Man's secret. A beautiful star!

"Oh," cried Sarah, "what a wonderful surprise! Thank you, Apple Man, for sharing your secret with me. I wish I could share it with Baby Andrew."

"I know," said Grandma, "let's make a star picture for Andrew's room."

Grandma got out a large sheet of paper and some paints. Next, she put a sponge on a small plate and poured some paint on the sponge. Then she showed Sarah how to dip half of the apple into the paint and then press the apple on the paper to create a beautiful star print.

Sarah printed stars all over the paper. Her picture was finished by the time her parents arrived home with Baby Andrew.

Sarah loved her new brother. "Someday," she thought, "I'm going to make an Apple Man for Andy. And someday, just like Grandma told me, I'm going to tell him about Apple Man's secret."
