Ten Apples Up On Top
It's fall time in Washington State and that means apples galore. This week we made the these fun apple crafts.
Stamping Apples: We created apple prints with real apples and added a sweet little apple poem called 10 apples. Follow these steps:
- Squirt some Red and Yellow paint (to create depth) in a tray
- Cut an apple in half for stamping - Helpful Hint: cut the side of the apple so kids can easily grasp the apple
- With a glue stick add 10 stems and 10 leaves
- Glue poem on the paper
Happy Apples. I created the apple template and the kids got to practice gluing and embellish it with a sharpie pen.
Torn Paper Apples. The kids are learning about shapes so we took different shapes and torn them to create an apple that had been eaten. Follow these steps:
- Start with a Black sheet of paper and add a brown rectangle
- Take a white square and rip the sides off - that will become the middle of the apple
- Take a red circle and rip it in half. glue one half at the top and one at the bottom.
- Take a green square and rib a stem and leaf off
- Use a black sharpie and add seeds.
