Description

Even though this craftivity is quick, easy & fun, it definitely has the "Wow!" factor.

"Apples can be red, yellow and green. These are the prettiest apples I've ever seen." is the little poem that's in the middle of the apple.

I've included a large, full-size teacher's apple, that you can use as a sample to explain things to your kiddos, then later, place it in the middle of your apple display or bulletin board.

You can pre-cut the templates for little ones, or run off the masters on white construction paper or card stock & have children trim their own, gluing the stem & leaf on.

There are patterns with & without the poem.

Using a crayon sharpener & broken peeled crayons, have students "shave" separate piles of red, yellow & green shavings.

They pinch a bit and then sprinkle the 3 colors on top of their apple cut out. Both of these activities, provide super, fine-motor skill practice, that helps strengthen those finger muscles.

Cover with a sheet of wax paper, press with a warm iron for a few seconds, then gently peel off the paper.

My kiddos often squeal with delight at how awesome their apple turns out. Each one is different, & completed projects make a lovely fall bulletin board.

Grab that teachable moment to toss in a bit of math & science, when the red crayon melts into the yellow to make the new secondary color. I put the equation red + yellow = orange on the board.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fantastic fall.
