Top Ten Back to School Apple Crafts and Activities


School may have just ended for many children here in the UK, but we're already starting to think about going back to school as Ethan starts preschool in September!  We love apples so we're already planning all of the fun apple crafts and activities we can make. So here's a list of our favourite apples creations from a fantastic collection of blogs.

Last year we had fun making this A is for Apple card for the teacher using apples to make prints.  We also used the apples just for fun printing afterwards, so many different projects could be made with apple printing, we might make some cute bunting or a wreath with apple prints this year!

If you are looking for ways to keep the kids learning throughout the summer holidays you may want to try making these Alphabet Apples from Toddler Approved for reading fun.  Or you could make these Cutting Practice Apple from No Time for Flash Cards to work on those fine motor skills.

We love apple tree activities and crafts, like this Pom pom apple tree craft from In the Playroom and Sticky Apple Tree from Adventures of Adam.  


Some of the cutest apple crafts that I found are these Yarn Apple Craft from Hands on as we Grow, they look so easy to make but are so creative and unique looking.  I also love these Stuffed Paper Apples from Buggy and Buddy, a great craft for young children to make and they would look great as decorations in a classroom.

If you're looking for some fun sensory play rather than a craft, my very favourites are these Apple Sensory Cards from Stir the Wonder that encourage children to identify different textures.  I also love this Apple Play Dough from The Imagination Tree, the way that she makes it an apple scent is absolutely genius and has inspired me to try a few different play dough recipes myself.  And of course you've got to have an Apple Sensory Bin like this one from Teaching Mama, great for back to school as well as autumn fun.

There is just something about apples and back to school, they go so perfectly together.  What's your favourite apple craft or activity?
