Looking for a kid-friendly apple themed craft? This one is a great choice! Check out this tutorial and free printable template. Use them to make up your own decorative apple orchard!
How adorable is this craft?
It uses simple materials that you likely already have around the house. You could also easily transform these crafts into ornaments by attaching ribbon on the back.
Every fall, the weather turns cooler and the days get shorter here in Eastern PA. And my very favorite part of fall is the apples that you can find by the literal bushel load at area farms and orchards. It’s rare for me to encounter an apple treat that I don’t like. We typically go apple picking and bring home a load of apples. I love baking up an apple pie or two with some of the apples. The remaining apples are turned into this delicious slow cooker applesauce. I love the smell as it simmers away in the kitchen!
Apple Crafts are Perfect for Fall
Whether you are a teacher, parent or babysitter, you know that seasonal crafts are always a great choice. Most kids enjoy crafting and when you can turn a craft into a teachable moment, it’s even better.
These adorable popsicle stick apple crafts will lend themselves perfectly to any fall/harvest/apple/farm theme!

How to Make this Craft
1. Print our template and use it to trace the shapes onto cardstock. Cut the cardstock pieces out.
2. Glue 4 popsicle craft sticks in a row to the front of the apple base and the apple top. Flip them over and attach to the back of the apple top and base pieces.
3. Use glue to attach a stem and a leaf to the front of the apple. Then flip the apple over and attach a stem and leaf to the back of the apple.
4. Use your marker to draw four tear drop shaped seeds in the center of the apple.
That’s it! You can hang up these apples on the wall (they would look awesome on a classroom door or bulletin board!). You could also glue a looped ribbon to the back of the apple top to create a hang-able apple ornament.
