Have fun today with this apple stamping craft

Little ones will love making designs and patterns using an apple as their medium. This craft is great for preschoolers.

Who knew a humble apple could double as a great craft item? While apples are good for kids to eat, as they contain antioxidants, vitamins, dietary fiber, and a range of other nutrients, they’re also perfect shaped for stamping.

Anything that allows children to get their hands dirty and interact with their food is a winning mix. So today, we’re going to show you how to have stamping fun with an apple, paint, paper, and a little imagination.

What you need

  • An apple
  • A knife
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • Paper towels

How to make it

  1. Begin by slicing an apple in half. This step is best left for an adult.
  2. Each side of the apple will function as a stamp, providing your child with two stamps.
  3. Let your child paint the insides of the apple halves.
  4. Help them carefully stamp the apple’s paint-covered side onto paper.
  5. Lift the apple to uncover the prints left behind.
