Princess Week: Snow White Apples and Letters to Cinderella
Yesterday we made Snow White's Poison Apples from The Fairy Tale Cookbook. While M ate, I read the story of Snow White from Grimm's Fairy Tales. The recipe actually called for grenadine to color the apples, but I decided to use cherry pie filling instead. I cored the apples and peeled the top half. I poured the cherry pie filling into a dish, and placed the apples upside down (peeled side down) for about 5 minutes to let the apple soak up the color. I moved the apples to a baking dish, filled the middle of the apples with cherry pie filling, and baked them at 300*F for about 30 minutes. Every ten minutes or so I spooned some of the cherry pie sauce from the dish over the top of the apples so they didn't dry out.
Of course, she wanted a second story, so we moved on to Cinderella. After we finished that story, I figured it would be a good time to get out our stationery and write a letter to Cinderella. I wrote a short letter, and M decorated it with princess stickers. I showed her how to address an envelope, add our return address and a stamp, and put it in the mailbox. I hope Cinderella writes back!

Our final activity of the day was a quick sticker collage. M loves princesses, and I really thought this week was going to be so easy, but I found that we ran through most of our activities in just a few days. I needed an activity to keep her happy while we waited for my husband to get home from work, so I rummaged through her sticker box and pulled out anything that started with the letter p: princesses, Paddington Bear, pizza, penguin, pig... whatever I could find.
