Coffee Filter Apple Craft
I just love September! You still get some warm days, but fall is in the air. Some leaves have started to fall. A new school year has started giving us all a fresh slate and new routine. But what I love most is making yummy apple recipes and creating cute apple crafts with my toddler, preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2 children. This adorable coffee filter apple craft is pretty and an easy apple craft to make as a September craft for kids.
All you need to make this apple coffee filter craft are a few common craft supplies you probably have laying around your house!
- red paper plate, any size
- coffee filter
- brown paper
- green paper
- black marker
Parts of an Apple Craft
If making this craft with younger kids who aren’t as confident using scissors, I suggest prepping these things before hand:
- cut out the leaf from the green
- cut the stem shapes from the brown paper
- cut the center out of the red paper plate to make the apple’s skin (make sure the space you left can be covered by the size of coffee filter you have) – make sure to leave the rim of the paper plate intact.
Paper Plate Apple Craft
Next, flip over the paper plate, and glue the coffee filter onto the backside.
The white coffee filter is the apple’s flesh, the center is the core.
After the coffee filter is secure, flip the plate back over and attach the stem using glue. Next, attach the leaf.
Next you will make the seeds. Use black marker to make small oval shapes around the center of the coffee filter.
Alternatively, you can use black pant and make a few finger prints. You can also use black paper to cut out small ovals and glue them to the center.
After your the glue dries, the paper plate apple craft is complete, ready to enjoy just in time for Fall!
