Apple Craft for Kids
I love the fall. I love apple season! We used to live less than 5 minutes from an apple farm, and it was so much fun to go and pick our own apples! Where we live now, there are still plenty of farms, they’re just not 5 minutes away 🙂 I also really enjoy visiting farmers markets to support farmers and get an excellent selection of fresh fruits & veggies, homemade goods, etc. When the kids were small, we had SO MUCH FUN doing kids crafts at home. I love babysitting for friends with small kids so we can make crafts together too. Crafts are a fun way to work on shapes, colors, cutting and counting – and the kids may not even realize they’re learning! I hope you’ll give it a try with this simple Apple craft for kids, created from wooden craft sticks.
Download and print Apple Pattern Sheet –> APPLE PATTERNS.
Trace and then cut out shapes from cardstock with scissors.
Attach four craft sticks in a row to the front of the base of the apple and the top of the apple. Flip over and attach the top and base of the apple to the back of the apple.
Attach a stem and leaf to the front of the apple, flip over and attach a stem and leaf to the back of the apple.
Draw four teardrop shaped seeds in the center of the apple.
Create a bushel of apples and fashion a banner or to decorate a classroom bulletin board.
