Back to School Activity Wall

With just over a week left of summer vacation, we decided to create a Back to School Activity Wall. Intead of using the tree I created from paper, I found a large bulletin board tree at Joann Fabrics. It worked great, and I will be able to use it for different seasons as well. (I will use the different colored leaves and acorns for the activity pieces in the future.)  
For the back to school wall, I used apples as the activity pieces.  I found these at Joann Fabrics as well. I wrote the crafts on the apples and added them to the tree. Each day the kids will pick a different apple and that will be the activity for the day. 
Our apples say: 
*Spaghetti Sensory play
*All about me rainbow
*Make a marshmallow bridge
*Make snack bags for school
*Back to school scavenger hunt
*Back to school photo booth
*Compass painting
*Make bouncy balls
*Camp-out in the living room for drive-in movie
