Today we made these simple apples and used them to review some colors, numbers, and practice name recognition. This craft is great for younger kids, because they can feel successful all on their own.
For this craft, you'll need:
Red, yellow, and green construction paper apple shapes
White paper apple shapes
Black apple seeds out of construction paper
Brown stems out of construction paper
1. First, we reviewed the different colors that apples come in and each child selected the color apple that they wanted for the "skin" of their apple.
2. Then, we looked at the pile of white apple shapes for the center of their apples. On each white apple, I had written the sentence "I am ____" and filled it in with the age of each child. We read the sentences together and reviewed number recognition of 1-4. The kids then sorted out who got each white apple.
3. The kids glued the white apples into the center of their apple skins.
4. Then, I wrote each child's name on a brown stem and put them in the center of the table. The kids sorted through the stems and found their name. They then glued their stems to the top.
5. Next, the kids counted out the number of seeds for their age and glued them to the apples.
They turned out really cute!
