  • construction paper
  • tempera paints
  • paper plates

What You Do

  1. Cut an apple in half lengthwise.
  2. Pat the apple dry with a paper towel.
  3. Pour a little bit of paint on a paper plate.
  4. Dip the cut side of the apple in paint.
  5. Press the apple down hard on a clean sheet of paper to make an apple print.

CHANGE THE SHAPE: Make other designs by cutting the other apple in half or in wedges.
