Materials

  • Scissors

  • Brown Construction Paper

  • Glue/Gluestick

  • White Paper Plate

  • Red, Green and Brown Crayon

  • Pencil

Directions

Step 1: Color your plate using your red crayon. (It’s okay if you want to color your apple a different color aside from red, as apples come in many colors).

Step 2: Using your hand and pencil, trace your hand onto a piece of color construction paper. Go ahead and cut out your traced hand. 

Step 3: Using a pencil/pen, draw a half of an oval on the top and bottom and a squiggly line on one side of the circle. Save the scraps as you will need them next.

Step 4: Flip over the scraps and color the smaller one green and the longer piece brown. These will represent leaf and stem.

Step 5: Bend the palm and place glue. Glue down the stem, leaf, and hand to the back of the plate.

Step 6: Here is your delicious apple!
