I have to admit, the title of this post was inspired by Top Chef. I love that show and noticed that often in the challenges a chef will take an ingredient and cook and present it in two ways. It always sounds fancier to say you’ve made something two ways. Try it next time you host a party.
I wish the apples in this kids craft were edible, but alas, they are not. With the weather finally turning a little cooler in Northern California, I was inspired to do some kids activities that focused on the Fall. I loved this fun idea I saw at The Picky Apple where they painted using wine corks. We are not big wine drinkers and don’t have any corks lying around, so I modified the project to use bottle caps.
Supplies you will need:
- bottle caps (the number depends on the number of colors you will be using)
- paint in Fall colors
- tray or plate for the paint
- construction paper for the background
- Brown construction paper cut into the shape of a tree.
So I just noticed that this post is pretty photo intensive. I think I will save the second apple idea for tomorrow so as not to overwhelm you all. If you liked this easy idea for kids art, check back in tomorrow for the the second way with apples. The anticipation must be killing you.
