While my son was out last week I found these cute pom poms left over from Christmas and I knew instantly what we should do with them, use them to make this cute apple tree craft! At 22 months old this was a great way for my daughter to develop her fine motor skills, and of course it looks pretty cute too!

How we made our pom pom apple tree
As normal before we started I got everything set up and ready to go. The pom poms were placed in cupcake cases to stop the rolling away and I put some glue in a bowl so that it could be easily accessed by little hands.
As I didn’t have any brown paper for the tree trunk I used felt instead, this also meant that there were more different textures in our apple tree craft which is no bad thing.
I invited my daughter to come and decorate the tree with apples, understandably at her young age her verbal communication skills aren’t all there yet (she says ice cream a lot though which shows she has her priorities straight!) so I showed her how to glue and put the first pom pom apple onto the tree.
Being a toddler she obviously had slightly different ideas! She wasn’t that keen on dipping the pom poms into the glue but would instead hold them up for me to put a little bit of glue onto them before she put them onto the picture. As you can see it looks like we’ll be getting a lot of windfall this year!
