When I think of being a little girl and the foods I most enjoyed, a memory of grade 2 “show and tell” pops into my head.
I brought an apple to school because I thought it was the coolest apple in all of grade 2! I know your thinking “that is a strange object to bring for show and tell” but, this apple was in fact, the coolest apple in all of grade 2.
The night before, my dad figured out how to cut an apple so that it can be put back together again to look like an un-cut apple.
Well Guess what?
You or your child can also have the coolest apple in school, because I just figured out the secret of the jigsaw apple and I am willing to share it with you!
Step 2: Use a sharp paring knife to cut a vertical slit, all the way from the top of the apple until you reach the middle of the fruit. Make sure you cut right to the core.
Step 3: Make a horizontal slit about 2/3rds around the apple.
Step 4: Make a vertical slit towards the bottom of the apple. Stop at the core.
Step 5: In the center of the area of the apple that has not been slit, cut a vertical slit from the top of the apple to the bottom.
Step 7: now you should have 2 pieces that fit back together again! You can now core the apple but you must be very careful or you could break the apple and your apple will no longer be as cool! If you core the apple, be sure to leave the stem in to achieve a realistic un-cut apple illusion!
Step 8: finally put some lemon juice on the white part of the apple to prevent it from turning brown and ruining its cool image!
Happy apple cutting!
