Apple Squares Craft for Kids!


Here it is! The last of our apple crafts for kids--for the Back to School season! It went great with all our other fun Apple crafts! (Like our Apple Buddy craft)
And don't forget to check out the fun Back to school crafts in my BOOK!)
This one is was so fun and easy. My little 3 year old loved going all around the apple shape gluing all the squares on. And the prep is a piece of cake. Or pie.
Apple Pie that is. :) Check it out!



Supplies:

How to Make it:
  1. Fold a white paper in half and cut out a "D" shape. Then cut a smaller "D" shape inside that. Then you've got the Apple shape for this craft, and the smaller white apple shape can be saved and used for THIS CUTE GREEN APPLE CRAFT!
  2. Cut out red strips of paper, about 1" thick.
  3. Then cut these into squares.
  4. Put glue on the white apple shape and let your child place all the squares on the glue!
  5. When it's dry, cut out a brown stem and a green leaf, and glue them on.

All done!
My little ones had so much fun with this fun back to school craft and we hope you do too!
Happy Back to School Year!




Here are some more fun things to go along with the Back to School-- apple theme! I especially love these plastic apples that you can fill with goodies, or even use for a fun educational activity to teach numbers or letters!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)




And if you are wondering where to get SUPPLIES for these crafts and activities, check out this post!

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
