Apple Paper Plate Craft for Kids
- 1 large paper plate
- 1 small paper plate
- googly eyes
- red and lime green craft paint
- green sticky felt
- brown pipe cleaner
- Elmer’s glue
- paint brush
1. Cut a small rounded tip triangle out of the bottom and top of your large paper plate This will create the indents that apples have.
2. Paint your large plate red and let dry.
3. Cut the side off of your small paper plate in a “C” shape, paint lime green (for your worm), and let dry.
4. Cut out a large leaf from your sticky felt. If you don’t have sticky felt, a piece of construction paper will do just fine as well.
5. Twist a brown pipe cleaner around your finger and place at the top of the plate and stick the felt leaf over top to hold the pipe cleaner in place. If using construction paper, glue on well. Make sure to let it dry before moving it.
6. Cut a small slit (the width of your green worm) and slide the bottom of the worm in. You can glue it in place if you want.
7. Now glue two googly eyes onto the end of the worm and let dry.
