Apple Stamps

Pierce the apple with a fork. The students can pick up the apples with the fork to dip in the paint and avoid getting paint all over their hands and clothes.

Dried Apple/Cinnamon Hangings

slice apples sideways and place in a lemon juice and water mixture for a few minutes. Moisten rigatoni pasta with water and then roll in cinnamon to coat. Using plastic needles and yarn, have children alternately string the apples and noodles. Add a country fabric bow to the top and dry near a sunny window.
