Age Group: 2years+
What you need:
What to do:
Place the foam pad on to the plate or dish. Pour paint into the center of the foam pad to make it into a stamp pad. Using red, green, and yellow paint to represent the different kinds of apples can be fun, but you could just use whatever your child likes or whatever you have at hand.
Press the cut side of the apple into the paint and then press it onto the paper to make a print.
Tips and Ideas:
There are so many things to do with apples. Take advantage of the abundance of apples at this time of year and get your child hooked! Happy Harvesting!
