Apples

Five apples are in a basket. How do you divide the apples among five children so that each child gets an apple, yet one apple remains in the basket?

I was going to say, give four children one apple each, and put the fifth child in the basket, but I see I was beaten to it, or something essentially the same.

Both answers are correct, though pilgrim's is funny as well!
