What You’ll Need for this Paper Plate Apple Craft
How to Make the Paper Plate Apple Craft
This apple craft requires very few supplies that you likely have in your home or classroom.
This craft is also a great way to help kids develop their fine motor skills which leads to good pencil grasp and handwriting.
1. Start by cutting a bite out of the side of the paper plate using scissors.
2. Paint the paper plate red. Then set aside to dry.
3. While they dry, cut out a leaf shape and a worm shape from the green paper.
4. Glue the popsicle stick to the back of the plate as the stem.
5. Glue the leaf to the front of the plate on the side of the popsicle stick stem.
6. Glue the worm to the back of the plate to make it look like it’s coming out of the bite from the apple.
7. Finish your apple craft by drawing a face on the worm using your black marker or add some googly eyes to make the worm funnier looking. That little worm is too cute, isn’t it?!
Your Paper Plate Apple Craft is done! I apple-laud your great work!
