I was really bummed that the “stars” in the center of the apples didn’t show up in our prints, but maybe it will work for you. I’m sure everyone has seen this idea before…but I couldn’t do an apple unit and not share apple stamping!
Here’s what you’ll need: an apple, a knife, and various colors of paint, and construction paper.
1. Cut your apples in half (from top to bottom). Obviously, since you will using a knife, don’t let your child help you with this step. :)
2. Set out your paints and let your little one dip the apples in the paint and then “stamp” on the paper. Warning: this can get messy!
And in case you’re wondering, Big Brother does own more than just this yellow shirt. It is his favorite, however, and insists on wearing it whenever it is clean. My sister brought it back for him from Nhowe Mission in Zimbabwe this past May and it is about 5 sizes too big. Oh well…at least he enjoys picking out his clothes!
