Kids Apple Crafts
Apple Printing Fun
Items you will need:
Knife (parent will use)
Paper color of choice.
What you will need to do:
Cut apples in half. Cut one at half starting at the core and cut the other in half starting at the middle of the apple. Each way to cut it give you a different pattern. For younger kidz you can just let them dip their apple into the paint and make apple prints. Older kidz can take a paint brush and paint white in the middle of the apple then outline the edge in red paint. When you make a print it will show the red skin on the apple. When you are done making your prints you can glue the seeds you got out of your apples on to the apple prints. Then your apple will look real.
Old Lady Apple Fun
Items you will need:
Butter knife or popsicle stick will work too.
What you will need to do…
You peel the apple and then with a knife cut the facial features (nose, eyes, mouth, etc.). Then the apple gets coated with a wash of lemon juice and water (so it doesn’t get dark brown). Then let air dry to shrivel and shrink to their each individual face.

Apple Cooking with Kids
PINK Applesauce in the Crock Pot
10 Apples (any kind) peeled and cored.
1 Cups Sugar (More or less to taste to your preference)
1/4 Cup Red Hots
Turn on crock pot while you peel and core apples. Add the apple slices to the HOT crock-pot. Once the apples are soft mash them and add the sugar and cinnamon candies. Stir.
It takes about 3 hours to cook on HIGH. Makes around 5 cups. As always, some kids LOVE it and some kids don’t. Either way, your house will smell great ALL day!!
Go to your local produce stand or produce department at the grocery store. Buy 1 of every kind of apple they have. You can take paper and pencil and do charting skills. Chart how many are green, red, or yellow. How many are big, medium or small, How many are with stems how many are with out. Use your imagination you can “chart” just about anything. Save your apples for rest of the week.
