Let’s get crafting. My kids love adding crafts and art projects into our themed learning. Over the past year or so I have been trying to include them more often and give them free range to an art cart they can use anytime they desire.

With the brown paper or brown construction paper, cut 4 long strips and 4 short strips about an inch wide.

To make the basket, have your child glue the long strips along the bottom of the white paper, leaving a bit of white showing between each one. Then have them glue the short ones vertical on top of these spread out evenly. Of course, they can choose to make it their unique style if they prefer 😉

More Apple Stamping Ideas

You can use apple stamps to create all kinds of fun art projects at home or in the classroom. For example, they make super cute “pumpkins” and jack-o-lanterns. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Paint the face of the apple stamp with orange paint and stamp it on white paper. 
  2. Then, when it is dry, glue on twine stems just like before. Are you noticing they look more like big orange pumpkins? That’s exactly what we want!
  3. Finally, use black paint to add silly jack-o-lantern faces to your “pumpkins.”

Isn’t apple stamping fun? Keep the learning going with all kinds of fun apple stamp art ideas.

Learn About Apple Parts

Learning how the parts make up the whole is an important early learning concept for toddlers and preschoolers. You can explore this concept with your early learners using a fun apple theme.

Apples have parts you can see in these cute apple stamping art projects. Talk about what your early learners notice:

  • Stems: The stem of an apple is the support that the rest of the fruit grows around. It’s very strong! The tiny stem holds the rest of the apple to the tree while it ripens.
  • Seeds: The tiny seeds in the center of the apple are the source of all the great big apple trees in the orchard! If you plant an apple seed, it grows into an entire apple tree.

You can learn more about what happens when you plant a seed in some of these fun books:
