Apple Prints Art Project

red apple prints on white paper

There are so many fun apple art projects for fall or back to school.

You may want to have some paint-free apples on hand in case your child wants to taste the apples.


What You’ll Need:

  • a nice ripe apple, cut in half
  • finger paint
  • paper

Project Prep

  1. Before you begin this project with your child, cut an apple in half and fill a plate with finger paint. Choose a bright color for some nice contrast on your paper if your child has some vision.
  2. Help your child hold the apple, dip it in the paint, then press it to the paper. The apple prints feel really neat once they’ve dried!
