This apple head craftivity is a super-fun
way to reinforce the 5 senses
If your kiddos are like mine, I know that they will really enjoy designing one. Results are rather hilarious, so you'll hear: "Can I please do another one?!"
Completed projects look adorable suspended from the ceiling, or used as a border for the top of a hallway wall.
I’ve included a “Fun With The Five Senses”
apple head poster for your display.
There's a huge assortment of facial feature options
Simply select a few of your favorites.
Children select a nose, mouth, and some ears & eyes, then glue them to their apple head. (There’s also a pattern for a stem and leaf).
Besides the facial features, I’ve also included patterns for a hair bow/bow tie, glasses, a mask
, and a selection of mustaches
I give the option of adding dangling legs
with cute sneakers. (Accordion folding paper is a great fine motor skill, which will help strengthen finger muscles.)
To reinforce the 5 senses
, there’s a set of labels
students cut and glue to their apple head as well; or they can simply label their creation.
Besides the craftivity, laminate a set of apples, along with 3 or 4 facial feature options, plus a set of labels, to be used as a “design an apple head” independent center activity
Allow children to take a photo of their completed creation, then make small thumbnails of each child’s apple head and put them in a class-made, picture booklet
. I’ve provided a cover
and album page
for this as well.
Because there’s such a huge variety of facial feature options, laminate some and have little ones sort them
according to which sense they go with.
I’ve included a colorful sorting mat
Children can also use the pieces to create patterns
: AB-AB, ABC-ABC etc.
There’s also a BW worksheet
, where children cut & glue the facial feature to one of the matching 5 senses
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing the 5 senses
with an apple head.
