An apostrophe is used to indicate ownership – or possession – and in contractions of “noun/pronoun is” or “noun/pronoun was”.
Apostrophes are never used to make a word plural.
To make a plural, just add an s. (Well, except when using words like child, sheep, fish, man, woman, deer. I could go on, but you get the idea.)
An English teacher decades ago taught me a little trick to always get it right.
