Apple Orchard Dramatic Play

Visiting the apple orchard is a fun fall tradition in many places.

Growing up in Michigan, I have many fond memories of visiting the apple orchard every fall. I went to the apple orchard on many school field trips, with my Girl Scout troop, and my parents- that’s a lot of trips to the apple orchard!

This kit includes printable props to help you easily create an apple theme in your dramatic play center. Open and closed signs, orchard sign, picture cards and much more are included in this 34 page printable packet.

  1. I love this apple feature in the classroom. I have an entire unit on apples. Apple Week is one of my favorite weeks of the fall season. Thank you for posting your apple dramatic play.

  2. Hi there,
    I just love your website- very useful! I really enjoy your dramatic play centers and can’t wait to start using them in my room. I have a question- how often do you change the center?

    • Vanessa Levin says:

      Some people change the dramatic play center theme every two weeks and others prefer only once a month. It depends on your preference and your student’s interest in the topic.
