Soooo… you may have noticed that we have gone a little APPLE MAD here recently.. well it IS apple season.. and apple crafts are such a lovely way to celebrate Autumn….

To help guide you through this article, I have split it into two sections – Apple Crafts for Preschoolers and Apple Crafts for kids. The first is meant to be a little simpler and more straight forward. BUT of course kids of all age groups can pick and choose between the different activities. They much need a little more help!

Let’s take a peak at these lovely fall crafts today.

 Now, 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.

Wrapped Yarn Apples – string them into a garland

I have always loved these “Stuffed Apples” what a clever way to upcycle paper bags into this cute paper apple craft! Such a great lacing activity for your kindergarteners or preschoolers!

How fun are these Apple Playdough Mats?

Apple Picking Craft & Activity – lots of fun! This is ideal for anyone looking for some cute apple tree crafts!

Love all sorts of Coffee Filter Art, these apples are lovely – this suncatcher is a great alternative to contact paper and tissue paper – as using coffee filters is more eco friendly and bio degradable!

Fun with Apple Collages! Go on a “red” colour hunt first. These would be great as a paper platea apple craft too!

More fun with apple tree crafts. 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!

Of course we need to do some apple stamping too. I also adore this newspaper and apple print bunting. Just wonderful. More info over on The Artful Parent! Grab your little buddy and have a go!

Apple Crafts for Kids & Grown Ups

Time for more fun apple crafts for older kids – this time we are looking at elementary school children (primary school in the UK) and upwards!

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.
