Create this mosaic apple kid craft with a little paper and glue for some fall fun. I love the taste of crisp fresh apples.
When we were kids we would go to a local farm and pick apples and get other fresh fruits and vegetables. I loved frozen apple cider too. Apples make me think of fall and cooler weather.
This craft would be great for fall, harvest, letter A, or farm theme. You could combine it with other similar trees and make a four seasons craft.
Pair this craft with a book for creating and reading fun. We like Apples Apples Everywhere: Learning About Apple Harvest
How to Make a Mosaic Apple Kid Craft
red, green, and pink paper
glue stick or liquid glue
First, cut 1 strip of brown. Then, cut 2 strips of green and several of pink and red. I made my strips about 1/4 in wide. I would suggest wider strips so they are easier to pick up. A bowl to put them in would be a good idea too. After you finish the strips, cut them into squares.
Next, cut an apple shape out of paper plate. Draw it out if needed. Cut enough off to round the paper plate into an apple. Cut a big enough piece for a small leaf and stem.
Using either the glue stick or liquid glue work in small areas, finally, glue the squares on the plate. Red, pink, and green for the apple body. Green for the leaf and brown for the stem. To make it look like a mosaic you will want to leave white space in between the pieces. Enjoy.
