Craft Ideas to Do with These Apple Templates
The crafts that you can do with these apple templates are really up to your imagination, but here are a few ideas:
Tissue Paper Apples
Print out the large apple templates and use red or green tissue paper to “color” the apple. This is a fun craft that preschoolers love! You can grab a bunch of tissue paper and have the kids tear them up into smaller pieces.
Then have them scrunch up the papers, roll them into loose balls or just make them into some kind of three dimensional shape.
Then they can cover the apple in glue and stick the crumpled tissue paper all over the apple essentially coloring it in.
This is great for helping them develop fine motor skills and keeping them busy and focused on a fun task.
Trace the Apple
You can also print out the apple templates and have the kids place a new piece of paper over the apple shape.
They can then practice tracing around the template with crayons, colored pencils or markers.
This is great for developing fine motor skills in preschoolers and kindergarten aged kids.
Use as Coloring Pages and Teaching Colors
You can also use these apple templates to teach them about different colors because each one comes in a few color options!
They can then use the smaller apple templates to color in the apples in a variety of yellows, greens and reds.
Identify the Parts of an Apple
You can also have them use the printable apples to help them identify parts of the apple. We include an apple pattern that has the seeds in it too.
So they can draw a line to each part and write the part out on their printable.
Help them to identify the stem of the apple, the core, the seeds, the skin and the apple flesh.
Writing about Apple Picking Experience
If you’re kids have recently been on a field trip to the apple orchard, printing out the apple outline and having them write about their experience is a great writing prompt.
The apple shape helps coordinate the thoughts while making it fun to have to write in a different shape than they are used to.
Make a Decorative Bunting for the Classroom or Home
Another fun idea is to cut out the smallest apple templates and use them to create a fun decoration for the wall.
They can tape the backs of the apples to a long string and hang up a fun apple bunting.
