Apple Print Collage
- Apple - cut in half
- Paper plate
- Paper towel
1) Cut the apple in half. You can experiment with your apple by cutting it into different shapes, or cutting the apple in different places.
2) Fold the paper towel into four. Place the paper towel into the center of the paper plate. Pour the paint onto the paper towel. The paper towel will act as a sponge soaking up some of the paint and allowing for better transfer onto the apple.
3) Dip the apple half into the paint. Firmly hold and press the apple half onto your piece of paper. Gently and fast lift the apple half off your page to create an apple shaped print.
4) Repeat until your collage is finished, and experiment with different print patterns.
You can use as many colors as you would like! Traditionally I enjoy using "apple colors" such as red, yellow, and green. Your preschoolers can even form a collection of apples onto a tree picture.
This craft can also be created using other fruits such as oranges, plums, lemons, or pears, or peaches! Vegetables can be used such as cucumbers, broccoli, celery, tomatoes or even onions! See picture below for an example.
