Without further ado… here are the fantastic Apple Crafts & Activities.
Apple Crafts for Preschoolers
Let’s begin with the wonderful set of kids that are PRESCHOOLERS. When my kids where younger – ie toddler and preschooler age – they had an abundant love for crafting and getting stuck in. They wanted to have a go at everything and anything.. however their fine motor skills and dexterity were not always at a level that enabled them to “keep up”. Finding the right sort of craft for preschoolers, is rewarding for both the child and the adult. They can enjoy the process as much as the end result. Here are some great Apple Crafts for Preschoolers, that will hopefully delight both children and adults alike. Sometimes it is hard to get the “age” exactly right, in which case a little assitance from the adult is called for. But I do hope you enjoy the following apple crafts for toddlers.
How fun are these Apple Playdough Mats?
Love how cute these construction paper apples are! Perfect for small hands and a great fine motor activity. More info over on Twitchetts!

Fun with Apple Collages! Go on a “red” colour hunt first.
Not only is this and adorable DIY Apple Tree (made from Cardboard Tubes) but you can also “pick the apples” and pop them into your pot. Great for DIY games or counting activities!

Apple Crafts for Kids & Grown Ups
The apple crafts for kids section is really a apple crafts for “all”. Some may be appropriate for younger kids too, especially if you enjoy crafting TOGETHER. But don’t be tempted to “take over” from them. Teehee. Anyway, everyone works at a different levels of dexterity and fine motor skills, and you may also enjoy some of the apple crafts for the preschool section (I certainly do)! I hope you enjoy them all.
