Apple Buddy - Back to School Craft for Kids!




It's Back-to-School time!
And so we're starting up weekly themes for our Preschool at Home again!
We're beginning with a "Back to School" theme, and first up was this fun little craft which LB(3) made!

Supplies:
  • Craft foam or construction paper in red, green, & black
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 white pom-pom
  • Glue
  • Marker

Get it all ready:
  • With the red foam or paper, cut out a a big apple shape. 
    • (an easy way is to cut out a circle first, then trim the top and bottom inward to make it look like an apple!)


  • With the green foam or paper, cut out:
    • 4 green circles (for hands & feet)
    • 1 leaf
  • With the black foam or paper, cut out:
    • 4 rectangles (for arms & legs)
    • 1 skinny triangle (for the stem)



Craft Time!

  • When it's all ready to go, sit down with your child and help them put it all together:
    • Glue all the foam & paper pieces on
    • Glue on the eyes & nose
    • Draw a smile with the marker


And there you have it! Your child's very own Apple Buddy!
Starting another school year is always fun.
Starting it with an Apple Buddy is even better. :)

Have fun!
