Gather your materials. Start by cutting out a “bit mark” in one area of the paper plate, like shown above. Then cut out a leaf shape and a worm shape from the green paper.

Next paint the entire paper plate red and let it dry. You can do this step first and use the drying time to cut out the worm and leaf shapes.

Now, take your popsicle stick and glue it to the top of the “apple” letting half of it stick out from the top.

Then attach your leaf onto the paper plate apple right where the stem meets the plate.
