Fall is my favorite season, it brings with it so many wonderful things like pumpkin patches, leggings, over-sized sweaters, pumpkin spice and the anticipation of the holidays. Fall is also an exciting time for toddlers & preschoolers, there are so many fun things in store! In preparation for the fall season, I have been coming up with some easy crafts to do with my son.
Here is a ridiculously easy fall "apple tree" craft for toddlers and preschoolers.

Apple Tree Craft
Last fall, we did a painting craft with veggies. It was so much fun, I decided to try it with apples and make an "apple tree". As I suspected my son loved this activity. It kept him entertained for quite some time and it is so easy to do!
What you need:
A roll of white paper (Large paper works best because there's plenty of room for the apples.)
Brown construction paper
Smock or oversized t-shirt (garbage bags with holes for the head and hands work, too!)
What you will prepare:
Cut the apple in half, cut the brown paper in the shape of a tree trunk and cut a large piece of white paper from the roll. Set out the white paper, brown "tree trunk", glue, paint, and apples.
What you will do:
Assist your child with gluing the "tree trunk" to the paper, then show him how to dip one half of the apple into the paint and stamp some apples on the tree. My son had so much fun, I gave him a second paper with no trunk to keep stamping once his tree was full!
And that' it! So, easy, right?
