Today we’ll explore one of the most popular craft activities for toddlers and preschoolers: making apple prints!
As much as we hate summer coming to an end, nature is taking things in its hands and fall season is fast approaching. It also means that soon we’ll have more rainy than sunny days and kids will be forced to stay inside.
Although rainy autumn days are annoying, they are also a great opportunity for more art, craft and other playful learning activities for our toddlers and preschoolers.
Apple print crafts are easy, fun and very rewarding for kids because let’s face it: It always turns out great! So, we have put together 3 different categories with apple prints:
- using and reusing apple prints as decorations,
- few art variations how to apply apple prints (to bring variety and keep things interesting!)
- playful learning using apple prints (math and literacy ideas)
