Apple Tree Craft
It’s hard to believe a new school year is already upon us. With that brings back to school, September activities, and September crafts like apple crafts! We have a fun apple tree craft that is as fun to make as it is cute! This apple activity is great for preschool, kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2 students.
Bubble Wrap Crafts
To make this apple bubble wrap craft you just need a few simple craft materials:
- brown construction paper
- piece of paper for the background (white or blue works nicely)
- bubble wrap (we used a recycled bubble wrap mailer)
- red and green paint
- paint brush
Most bubble wrap should work well for this. We got our bubble wrap from a recycled mailer. We’ve also used bubble wrap from the dollar store or that we got in a package form Amazon or with new furniture. Bigger bubbles will make bigger apples.
Apple Craft Ideas
To get this craft with bubble wrap ready, cut a tree trunk shape from the brown construction paper. This doesn’t need to be perfect as the paint will cover some of it anyway. I cut multiple tree trunks by folding the paper into thirds and cutting the three layers at once.
Next, cut a tree top shape from the bubble wrap. I cut a circle out first and then cut waves around it.
Glue the tree trunk to the center of the background paper.
Apple Tree Crafts
Paint the bumpy side of the bubble wrap green.
Next, choose some bubbles to paint red. These dots will be the apples.
Apple Tree Craft
Carefully turn the bubble wrap over and press it onto the paper on top of the tree trunk. Be sure to press all around the bubble wrap to make sure all of the paint prints onto the tree.
Slowly peel the bubble wrap up off of the paper and set aside.
