Apple Craft for kids
Carefully cut the inside of your white paper plate leaving about a 3″ border.
Apple Craft for Preschoolers
Now use a hole punch to make circle cut-outs around the inside of your paper plate evenly spaced out about 1″ or so.
Apple Crafts Preschool
Insert yarn through the hole and begin going back and forth in random patterns to create almost a web-like design in your paper plate.
Apple Craft for Kindergarten
Continue until you have a pretty dense, but still see-through yarn web. You can use tape to affix the end of the yarn if you like; cut off the rest.
Cut small, 1″ squares out of construction paper with scissors. IF you are making a red delicious apple, use red paper, for a granny smith green apple use green apper, for a yellow delicious apple use yellow paper, and so forth.
Apple Crafts for Toddlers
Use glue to begin afixing the red squares of paper on the paper plate border. Make sure you overlap the other red squares.
Continue going all around the plate so that there is none of the paper plate border showing.
Use crayons, markers, or colored pencils to decorate the leaves, worms, and seeds in the apple craft template printable. Now cut them all out carefully.
Now glue on the brown construction pape stem, green leaf, black seeds, and then tuck in the worm through the openings between the yarn.
You can repeat to make a green apple craft, yellow apple craft, and red apple craft too.
Isn’t this paper plate apple craft such a cute project?! I just love the dimmension, cheerful colors, silly worm, and unique project. Hang these on a kitchen window, buleltin board, refridgerator, or anywhere else you like to decorate for fall.
