The Story of the Apple Star

Years ago at a fall festival,  I remember a story teller telling a really cute story about the star that you see when you cut into an apple.  When the kids and I came home from apple picking at the orchard today, I thought it would be a fun time to share the little legend.  However, although I remember the basic premise, I couldn't remember any of the details.  Googling led me to several versions of  "The Little Red House with No Windows, No Doors, and a Star Inside" but I couldn't find the story I'd heard.  Finally, I came across this version on a site for Girl Scouts.  It was short, but was the closest to the one I'd heard a long time ago.  I decided to elaborate on it a little bit and make my own version.  It was a big hit with my kids and I like how it includes a little lesson on how hard work and patience can bring you rewards.

Check it out...

And here's my son after I read the story and I cut into his apple to reveal the star...



Definitely check out the version that inspired me HERE (she also has a cute dried apple wreath project to go with it)

  8. Hi, I found this through Pinterest and this is awesome.
    Whenever we eat an apple, I sing a song about the little seeds inside that are dreaming of growing into big trees. (I'ts a Dutch song, so I can't share it.)
    I love this story and I am pretty sure my kids will love this too.
    Thank you.
