Dried Apple Project

Before Christmas Isaac and Cate decided to make some dried apple faces.  I did this when I was a child.  Liz and I made the faces and then attached them to a dishsoap bottle that we covered in fabric to look like a dress.  It was supposed to be an old woman.  
Anyway here are the carved apple faces.  Cate's and Isaac's.  We soaked them in some lemon juice to prevent them from over-browning.
Here are the apples after having dried 4-5 weeks.

I think they turned out pretty cool.  They would be fun to do for Halloween - to make them as scary as possible.  Anyway - a fun and easy project for kids.
