An apple a day...

Perks up a rainy day!  A fun and healthy after-school snack is this apple umbrella.

First, take an apple (I used a Pink Lady apple) and cut it in half.  Remove any seeds that may be in it.

Next, cut the apple in half horizontally.  Make sure that the curved end is facing up.

Now, carefully take the knife and cut 4 equally-distributed lines into the apple skin.  Peel the skin off of 2 of the sections.

Take a bendy straw and cut right below and a little above the bend.  Insert it into the base of the apple.
