September 26: Johnny Appleseed was born (1774).

With several holidays yesterday which combined nicely for one major event, Johnny Appleseed’s birthday gets bumped a day. There’s plenty of activities you can do with apples. Here’s one:

Apple Smiles

2.       Spread peanut butter on one side of an apple wedge.
