Bobbing for Apples

ages 5-6


Apples, large tub, kids with teeth!

Activity Detail

You remember this old standard, don't you? Fill a large tub with water and put in some apples. Have the children gather round and try to catch an apple with their teeth. No hands are allowed (and you may tie the players’ hands behind their backs to prevent cheating if desired). According to some historians, this game goes all the way back to ancient harvest festivals where it was believed that the first player to catch an apple would be the first to marry. Today, a little prize or simply a cheer for the winner will probably suffice! (Note: An alternative is to tie apples to strings hung from a line.)
