Apple Thumbprints

Toddler, Pre-K, K

Another fun apple painting craft is a thumbprint apple tree. Thomas' thumprint went on a pre-made paper that I have for his fall fun book...but you can do the same apples with your child.

To make this craft you need:
  • Red, green, and/or yellow paint (washable is best)
  • Paper
  • An adorable thumb
Draw and color a green bushy tree top, or you can cut one out of construction paper. Add your drawn or cutout tree trunk.

Paint your child's thumb the apple color you want and have them add apples to the tree. They can make as many as they want, and don't forget a few that would fall to the ground for the animals to eat.

If you don't feel you are artistic enough to draw or cut out your tree top and trunk, print the below picture and you or your child can color it in and add painted thumbprint apples, or use as a pattern.

You can get the free PDF version where I got it, by clicking here.
