Yesterday we picked the first of the apples from our apple tree (woo hoo!) which means that as far as I’m concerned it’s the perfect time to share this simple apple tree craft for kids. It’s super easy to set up and perfect for encouraging a little chat about the change in seasons.
You will need
Duplo or lego
Green and / or red paint
Making your stamped apple tree craft
The first thing to do is to make your tree which you can do by cutting out the tree trunk from some brown card and the leaves from some green card. Don’t have any brown card? Packaging is a really good option but if not you can do as we ended up doing and painting some normal card or paper brown and leaving it to dry before you get started (a little preparation is obviously needed here!)
Once your tree is ready use the duplo to make red or green apples on the tree – dipping it into the paint and then stamping it onto the green leaves and branches. Once it’s dry you could also colour in the apples if you wanted or add some leaves for your apples. Apples being stamped on places other than the main bit of the tree? Well I figure that’s the perfect excuse to discuss windfall apples!
