Apples Two Ways - Part Deux

Hey, you came back!  For those keeping score, I promised to share the second apple kids craft today.  I am all about ease and simplicity.  When I did the first apple activity, I cut a tree out of brown construction paper and glued it to a background piece of the paper.  When I was doing that I knew I wanted to do two apple activities so I cut out some extra trees.  I used them here.

Supplies you will need:
  • Tree cutout
  • pom poms in Fall colors
  • glue (I poured some in apple sauce cups and gave the girls a brush to paint it on since they lack the hand strength for glue bottles)
The girls were very excited when they got their "apples."  They pretended to eat them and then tried to sort them by color.

"A" starts by gluing her small apples first.

Sorry for the blurry shot, but B was so excited when she stuck some apples on her tree.  I love the joy on her face.  Ah, to be 3 again.  

"A" adding more glue.

This is A's completed tree.  Notice it only has apples on the right side.  I think the other side didn't get much sun.

C found this more challenging than the twins but she had some help from Grandma who took care of the glue while C placed the apples on her tree.  

Kids activities are done. What's left to do?  Have an apple snack of course.  I highly recommend our Cinnamon Sugar Shakers.  You know you want some.
