Apple Cutout Kids Craft

My sister and I have been doing a homeschooling co-op together. Our kids are the same ages, so it seems ideal to partner up twice a month to do some fun crafts and activities. We decided that to help us plan what to do, we will work through the letters of the alphabet.  So for the letter A, I decided to have the kids make an Apple Cutout Kids Craft.

The kids had a great time with this craft.  The prep work for me included cutting strips of scrapbook paper (this was a great way to get rid of some of the random scraps I had laying around), and cutting out the apple from a piece of card stock that goes over the top.

When cutting strips of scrapbook paper, they don’t need to be the same size.  Mine ranged between 1/2″ thick to 3/4″ thick, and I just put the paper in my {affiliate link} Fiskars 12 Inch Scrapbooking Trimmer and cut, cut, cut, not really worrying about how thick they were.

For the apple cutout, I used an {affiliate link} X-ACTO #2 Knife and the Apple Cutout Kids Craft pdf I designed. You can download and print a copy for yourself:

Altogether, the prep work for this apple cutout kids craft for 4 kids took me about 10 minutes.   After making the craft, we had apple pie sticks for a snack, and learned the Bible verse “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Once the prep work is done, give the kids a glue stick or bottle of glue, a stack of paper strips, and a piece of plain construction paper. 

I loved seeing how the kids personalized their craft.  I helped Little Man make his, so it turned out as I had envisioned it, but Miss Magoo decided to put her paper strips on at a diagonal, and it turned out really cute.  She also decorated it with hearts and the words, “I love you,” by the stem.

What are your favorite crafts to do with your kids?
And if you’re in a homeschooling co-op, I’d love to hear how you organize activities!
