Around the Web – Apple Crafts


I’ll be traveling to NYC this week, but not to worry as I have several posts lined up. For today, I thought I would leave you with some really fun apple crafts to keep all the kiddos happily occupied. Have fun!!

Learn how to make this fun apple garland over at I Can Teach My Child. So cute!

These apples are made from recyclables (aka FREE art supplies!). Visit 4 Crazy Kings to see how to make your own!

This would make a perfect gift for a special teacher! See Make and Takes for instructions.

I love how I Can Teach My Child used recyclables and inspiration from the book 10 Apples Up on Top to make this fun craft and counting activity.

Have fun!!

Have a fun apple craft to share with us? Feel free to link up in the comments — we’d love to check it out!!

    Love your site!!

    • I LOVE your magnets! You get extra bonus points for using a frozen juice can lid. :-) Very cool!

  2. These crafts are really cute! I love how you made this website for families on a budget, because many families do not have much these days!!!

    • Thanks, Cori! Welcome to FFFB! We love to inspire parents to spend good quality time with their kids, and that doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. :-)

  3. oo I love all of these crafts!! The apples on the pencils are so cute! We made this apple craft for 10 apples up on top: http://www.bytesofmemory.com/2010/09/start-ten-apples-up-on-top.html

  4. I loved apple week in our classroom! The activities you’ve posted here will be a great addition for next year. I’ll bookmark them! :)

    • That makes me very happy!! You were very busy with all the apples, I see. Love the stamping with corks — that is always a big hit around here!

  5. That apple garland is adorable!

    Have fun in NYC =)

    • I can’t resist a pretty garland! ;-) Wish I were able to enjoy NYC a bit more, but I’m only here to be with my dad for his surgery. Thankfully, it went smoothly and he is recovering remarkably well!!! We are all very grateful for that!!

  6. That gift would work perfect for a teacher – super fast — it is World Teacher Appreciation Day.

    • Fantastic!!! I didn’t even know it was World Teacher Appreciation Day. That should be EVERY day! :-)

  7. Great collection of Apple crafts and all from a frugal prospective. I really like the top two crafts, I think they look very nice.

  8. Great activities. Here’s another Ten Apples Up On Top craft: http://litlad.blogspot.com/2010/08/ten-apples-up-on-top-and-johnny-boo.html
