So after we went on our trip to the orchard last week we got pretty busy with apple crafts! You might have already seen the apple shaker we made but we also made these paper plate apples. Rather than just get the paints out I thought it might be a good idea to try a torn paper apple craft instead, firstly because tearing paper is really good for fine motor skills, but also because I think it can get a bit boring always doing everything the same way. For me as well as the kids! I really loved the way my son chose to decorate his which I’ll share with you further down!
I’m very lucky to be blessed with a lovely, kind three year old boy who wants to give me birthday presents every time we go out. I’m slightly less lucky that those gifts are always pine cones! I always seem to have a handbag full of the things so with that in mind I thought it might be a good idea to round up some of the best pine cone activities for preschoolers to help out any fellow parent with bags full of the things who can’t bear to just chuck them out!
It seems strange to say this but I think Autumn and Fall crafts are starting to slow down now as we all start thinking about Halloween. I figure though that gives me one more chance though to make the most of autumn so here’s some easy apple activities for kids to make.
Yep, Autumn is well and truly here (doesn’t it feel like it’s been here for a couple of weeks now?!) With a new season though comes a chance to do new things so this weeks Tuesday Tutorials is all about sharing some of the great autumn crafts for preschoolers that were linked up last week. That’s my week pretty much sorted!
