I thought, “Lets make a Jack-O-Lantern Apple Stamping craft!” I think the end results came out really cute.
I used a couple old apples I had in the fridge (I didn’t want to waste a new crisp apple).
This is a perfect craft to do when you’re about to throw away old apples. You know, those apples sitting in the fridge a little too long.
Step 1 – Create Your Pumpkin’s Face
I cut my apple in half and used a knife to carve out my eyes and mouth.
Step 2 – Dip Your Apple
I had my son dip his apple into orange paint (making sure the front of the apple was completely covered with paint). Then, he firmly pressed the apple onto the paper.
Quick Tip: I put forks in the backs of my apples so my son could get a better grip.
Step 3 – Finishing Touches
Once our Jack-O-Lanterns were dry, I had my son fill in the eyes, nose and mouth with black paint. He had lots of fun creating his faces.
…I even got in on the action and made a couple faces myself.
Once again, the apple stamping was a hit! My son is at the stage where he would rather play with his fruit then eat it.
Maybe I’m not setting a good example with all this fruit stamping, yikes…
