  4. I LOVE this! I always give my children’s teachers a basket of apples on the first day of school, but the leaf on the apple is sooooo cute!!!

  5. Fun! This brought back such memories of when I was a teacher! I did the same thing for each of my students on their birthdays, except I wrote their names and “happy birthday” on the paper leaf. I think they liked getting apples on their special day, even though they were 18 (I taught high school Physics) – they carried their apples around to show them off, silly things! There was a spell when good, large apples were just impossible to get at our local fruit stand so I gave out pears, and the students were politely appreciative but it was just not the same. Thanks for this fun walk memory lane for me!

  6. That is too cute. I teach 2nd grade and doing something like that would just touch my heart!
