Paper Plate Apple Core Craft

Nothing says September like apples! We love making lots of apple crafts, apple learning activities, and apple baking during the month. This super cute and simple Paper Plate Apple Core Craft is a fun project to do with toddler, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, and grade 1 as it works at improving fine motor skills, pincher grasp, and coordination while creating a beautiful September craft for kids!

We planned on making just red apple cores, but my son wanted to make a green one (his favorite) so we made green as well! I think they both turned out very cute.

I love making crafts for kids using things I have have on hand; I don’t have time to run to the store for fancy craft supplies. So we used one of our paper plate craft ideas to whip this fun apple crafts for kids using these common materials:

  • paper plate
  • red, green, brown, and black construction paper
  • glue
  • scissors
cut oval edge off of both sides of the paper plate

Apple Crafts for Preschoolers

To get the apple core craft ready for the kids, I cut the sides of the paper plate off using curved lines to make an apple core shape.

I also cut out leaf and stem shapes with green and brown paper.

Next, I had the kids help tear pieces of construction paper. We tore a lot of red and green paper pieces for the apple skin. We also made a few black pieces for the apple seeds.

Spread glue along the top and bottom of the apple core.

Add red torn paper pieces (or green if making a green apple) along the top and bottom of the apple core to make the apple skin.
