Today I’m sharing some easy and fun apple crafts for toddlers that are perfect for learning about fruits or as simple crafts for autumn. We have an apple tree in our garden and my kids are always fascinated to see the apples grow on it throughout the summer and of course to pick and eat the apples once they’re ripe! We love sharing crafts for toddlers and you’ll find more ideas perfect for little hands at the end of this post too as well as some simple apple stories for toddlers perfect for sharing together, perhaps with some apples to eat or a slice of apple pie!

Most of the apple crafts for toddlers that I’m sharing today are ones that we’ve done, including lots that I did with my kids when they were younger but you’ll also find a few from some of my favourite blogs for crafts for toddlers and preschoolers. There’s apple stamping, apple tree crafts, apple art and loads of fun ideas that you can try out with your child. You could also try out some easy leaf crafts while you’re at it which are great if your children love all things outdoors and to do with nature!
Apple Books for Toddlers
- How Do Apples Grow by Jill McDonald – the illustrations in this book look gorgeous and it’s a great way to introduce some science and nature to toddlers
- Peppa Goes Apple Picking by Meredith Rusu – I’m happy to admit that the Peppa Pig books we own are some of the ones that have been read most and have definitely stood the test of time so far, my daughter would love this one too!
- Apples, Apples, Apples by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace – a beautiful looking story book with facts and activities too.
