Apple Prints

Fall is the perfect time to learn about apples. This week was hard to plan because I have SO MANY ideas!! I was eventually able to limit it to only five.

 Supplies:

apple cut in 1/2

paint (I like white but any “apple” color would look great!)

paper

Activity:

Teach your child how to press the apple into the paint and then onto their paper to make a print (most kids have a tendency to rub not press). Stamp a couple of apple prints and let dry. When dry,  decorate with crayons (it’s fun to add stems, leaves, seeds, and even worms!).

Other Ideas:

We like to do ours on big paper and laminate. They make great placemats! (see picture above)

These look great on brown paper bags:
