Activity Wednesday

This activity goes along with our letter of the week: A!
Apple Print Craft
Paper Towels
Shallow Dish
Construction Paper
Cut the apple in half.  Experiment with your apples by cutting them different ways.  Cut through the top and out the bottom to make a "traditional" apple print.  Cut through the middle to make "star" prints.  With Valentines Day coming, why not cut your apple into a heart shape?  An apple cut in quarters will give you a new print
Fold a paper towel into 4th and lay it on the bottom of your shallow dish.  Pour paint into the center of the paper towel to make a stamp pad.  Use red, green and yellow to represent the different kids of apples.  Dip the cut side of the apple into the paint.
Dab it around on the paper towel to wipe off excess paint, and then press onto paper.
Try using other fruits as well: oranges, lemons, pears, etc.
You can also use fabric paint and make prints onto T-shirts, towels, etc.
