How to make easy apple art- Pictures
First, pick your child’s work area and spread out newspapers to cover your table, floor or where ever you choose for them to work. Kids and paint most of the time equals.. messy!
Next, pick an apple or 2 depending on how many colors you want. We choose red, yellow, and green because those are the colors of apples. Cut each apple in half and push a fork into each half apple but be careful not to push it all the way through. See picture below.
Let your children apple stamp blank pages and this letter A printable.
Let the kids pain small brown stems on the tops of their apples. The smaller kids may need more help then your older ones with this.
Once your apples are dry cut them out and make this easy paper basket. All you need is black construction paper and a few strips of brown construction paper. See the picture below.
Now, lets glue the basket down. Run your glue stick around the bottom edges, this will secure the basket to the paper.
Glue each strip of brown paper making sure not to glue the middle at all.
Glue on the edges of your basket and then your basket is done. Make sure the middle wasn’t glued down before you put your apples in the basket.
Cut out each apple and slip them into the basket.
Number the back of each apple for your child to count them later. We put the apples in order from 1 -10.
