Tissue Paper Apples:
cardboard apple cutouts
tissue paper squares (red, green, yellow)
glue & scissors
This is a simple apple project, perfect for a group of random aged kids. momstown had kids between age 2 and 10 creating a variety of apples all together.
1. Trace and cut out apple shapes on old cardboard from cereal boxes or old cardboard boxes.
2. Dab glue or cover the apple in glue, then add your tissue paper (each age will attempt to try this in many different ways). Some children scrunched up the tissues paper to make a definitive apple. Younger one slapped down the tissue paper flat to make a messier but fun version. Others used the end of a pencil to create a fuller, more 3D apple. Open to all creativity.
3. Fill in the apple (red or green) until you can't see the cardboard!
4. Use your apple to decorate a tree or use as a thank you gift for your teacher!
