Fun and Easy Apple Crafts for Preschoolers
Get your kids excited about Fall with these easy apple crafts for preschoolers.
Apple Prints with Real Apples
After your field trip to the apple orchard for ta day full of apple picking, these apple stamps make a fun craft for the younger kids.
Carefully, slice the apples in half. You can use any type of apple for this fun activity. When planning your easy Fall craft, plan on the younger children wanting their own apple. This is the perfect time to explain why the apples, once dipped into the paint, need to be returned to the same paint plate.
Put some red, yellow, and green paint onto paper plates. The kids use the apples to create apple stamps.
The younger and older children will have lots of fun creating a stamp pattern.
Apple Tree Craft Handprint
This easy handprint apple tree craft is cute, easy, and makes a great keepsake craft for kids. Anything to remember those little hands!
The tree trunk and branches are an outline of your kids forearm and hand. Simply cut and set aside for next step.
Draw and cut a tree top out of green construction paper.
Next, because it is apple season, the kids can add apples to the trees using red, yellow, or green pom-poms. This is a simple way to incorporate sensory into a fantastic apple craft.
Paper Plate apple craft
Whether you have toddlers and preschoolers, or kindergarten and first graders, this paper plate apple craft is a fun way to kick off the Fall season.
Paper plate crafts, and paper apple crafts make great art projects for this time of year.
Coffee Filter Apple Suncatchers
Apple craft ideas are so much fun during the Fall season. There are so many great ideas, but this one was a family favorite.
Colorful apple crafts make a beautiful window display or a Fall bulletin board display.
If you have coffee filters around the house, or in your classroom, see how we made this apple coffee filter craft, here.
Apple Sensory Bin
Perhaps you are a preschool teacher, or have kids of your own, and you are looking for fun sensory bin ideas for the Fall.
Go to the nearest Dollar Tree, Walmart, Michaels, or JoAnne’s, and fill little bins with the simplest Fall items you can find. This would be fun to make on a crafty morning with kids of all ages.
An apple sensory bin can be as simple as dried oats, toy apples, mixing spoons, red and green pom-poms, and kid scoopers. The tweezers, or scoopers, are great for their fine motor skills.
Yarn Apple Craft
Sometimes we need fun apple crafts that don’t require a lot of materials, such as paint, clue, and boxes of pom poms. Instead, it can be a simple idea that only requires cardboard and yarn – just like this fun Fall craft. See how we made these yarn apples, here.
There are many different ways you can make apple play dough to go along with your best apple crafts. I chose this recipe because it is edible, and safe for young children to play with.
