preschool apple craft ideas

We wanted to update some of our preschool apple craft ideas since we've been collecting new ones. We've compiled a list of 15 new apple crafts for preschoolers that we hope will be fun for parents and children alike.

The first craft project is called the Paper Quilling Apple Craft that will require more work from mom or dad but once the pieces are cut out, the little ones should be able to finish the project.  Next up, we have apple-themed frames.  

As well as a simple project made from pine cones. Toddlers enjoy working on their own sometimes, so this make a great choice to give them some independence. Easy work to paint as they please. Plus we have other preschool apple craft ideas that involve yarn, paper cut-outs and musical instruments. Enjoy!

Summary:


Paper quilling just might be my new favorite craft! I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while and this fall themed apple craft made a great beginner project. My 8-year-old daughter also loved it, she loved making the different shapes of quills and putting it all together.

We didn’t use any special tools or paper for this project, so it is a great beginner paper quilling craft and great for kids. Just a chopstick to use as a quilling tool and cut up cardstock that I cut on my paper cutter. Add in some glue and that’s really all you need!

Paper Apple Crafts

This next set of preschool apple craft ideas are a compilation of primarily paper projects. We have ideas for toddlers to cut up paper and in another project has them sponge painting to their hearts delight. The messier the better.

Another cool idea we found was a recipe to make Playdough. Perfect for sensory play!  Then we have another painting project. Splatter paint! Get that marble effect on your apple art. 

We love the apple stained glass window project. We've seen this time and again but the project always turns out well so we keep showcasing them in different themes. Finally we have another simple idea for the youngest of our preschoolers, a combination of hand print and paper plate paint. Click the links for full details.

We all know how much kids love crafts, but sometimes we don’t realize how important crafts are for kids fine-motor skills.

First off, make sure you watch this great video on making a popsicle stick apple craft. It's really well made and we're always happy to include a video tutorial when we find them.

One of the cleverest apple projects we discovered was the lacing alphabet apple. It such a fun way to practice fine motor skills along with alphabet practice. Your preschooler may just be getting started with letters, but you can help them with this and get them going. Last is the easy apple craft for the little ones. Cute and simple.
