School has started and it will soon be apple season which means it’s time for juicy apples, cider, and yummy food like homemade apple pie. Apple season also brings lots of opportunities for apple-themed activities and crafts like this Paper Plate Apple Craft. Whether you prefer red or green apples, this is sure to be a fun activity that your kids will be proud to display in the classroom or at home!

This Paper Plate Apple Craft is a fun, hands-on fall or Back to School activity that strengthens both listening and fine motor skills!

Paper Plate Apple Craft

My students love tearing paper which makes this activity extra exciting and engaging for them. As an added bonus, tearing paper helps them to develop their fine motor skills which leads to a good pencil grasp and better handwriting. And since the kids tear the paper, this craft needs almost no prep. Let’s gather our supplies!

Supplies Needed:

Grab some construction paper, paper plates, and a glue stick to make this simple apple craft.

How to Make the Apple Craft

The directions for this apple craft are very easy to follow, making it an ideal craft for young kids to do independently!

1. To begin, have kids tear red (or green) paper into smaller pieces.

2. Next, they can glue the pieces of torn paper onto the paper plate. We overlapped them to be sure to cover as much of our plate as possible.

3. Lastly, the students can cut a stem from the brown paper and a leaf from the green paper and glue them to the back of the paper plate.

Glue the pieces of torn paper onto the paper plate to cover it completely so it looks like an apple.

These small paper plate apples would look cute on a bulletin board with a big tree in the middle and your students’ apples surrounding it!
