Apples.  Caramel apples. Apple pie.  Apple Cider.  Apples crunchy and sweet, crisp and tart.

Did you know October is National Apple Month?

It is.  To celebrate, we've been singing apple songs around these parts.

My favorites:

Ring Around the Apple Tree
(tune: Ring Around the Rosies)

Ring around the apple tree
All full of apples
Shake it!
Shake it!
They all fall down.

10 Little Apples
(tune: 10 Little Indians)

1 little, 2 little, 3 little apples
4 little, 5 little, 6 little apples
7 little, 8 little, 9 little apples
on my apple tree.

Munch little, munch little, munch little apples!
Crunch little, crunch little, crunch little apples!
Bunch of little, bunch of little, bunch of little apples,
Good for you and me!

Five Little Apples
(tune: Five Little Monkeys)

Five little apples hanging in a tree
teasing Mr. Crawling Ant can't eat me
Along comes Mr. Crawling Ant quiet as can be
and he CHEWED that apple right out of that tree.
(continue with 4, 3, 2, 1 apples)

Apples Juicy and Round
(tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Apples juicy, apples round
On the trees and on the ground
Apples yellow, apples red
Apple juice or pie or bread
Apples crunch, apples sweet
Apples are so good to eat.

Enjoy the apples everybody!

  1. Awesome. Thanks, Ames! So, do you remember "my" apple trees? Mom bought apple trees to decorate at my wedding reception in Muncie, and now they are planted in her backyard here, behind the pool house? She finally let them grow apples this year, and I get to pick some! I'm excited.
