Apple Print Art

Supplies: an apple
plastic lids

Since fall is almost upon us I thought a great craft for early September would be apple print art. It's super easy and fun.
1. Cut an apple in half. Take one of the halves and cut it in 1/2 again.
2. Pour out a little bit of paint into a plastic container lid. Keep each color separate.
3. Use the cut apple as a stamp. Place it cutside down into the paint and move around until the paint covers the surface.
4. Stamp the apple on the blank paper.

That's it! You can make abstract designs or try to create real objects. My kiddo lasted about 30 minutes on this craft and most of the time he just gooshed the paint between his fingers and ignored the apples. I say as long as he enjoyed himself who cares what the end product is?
