Engage your child’s seasonal senses with this simple art craft. Before you start cutting open your apples, ask your child what they expect to find inside. (Most children love discovering that apples hold a secret “star” when you cut them in half!) Next, let their creativity fly.
What to do:
- Once your child has guessed what they’ll find in the apple when you cut it, show them how to create the star by cutting the apple in half. Point out the different parts of the apple (seeds, flesh, peel, stem).
- Next, pour a small amount of paint onto a paper plate. (You may want to start with one color at a time, but do what is most engaging for your child!)
- Tell your child to dip the apple half into the paint, and then press it onto the paper. Point out how the star transfers in the stamp.
- Continue stamping as much as you and your child would like. (Bonus: Apple stamped paper also makes great homemade wrapping paper for gifts!)
