These yarn-wrapped apples are a fun fall craft for kids. With a little prep work, they can also be fun for preschool-aged children. They look cute hung on a wall or a bulletin board.
- Yarn (red or green)
- Markers (brown and green)
Draw (or trace) and cut out apple shapes.
Tape one end of a long piece of yarn to an apple shape. Older kids may not need the yarn to be taped, they can just hold it and begin wrapping. For younger kids, I recommend this step.
Begin wrapping the yarn around the apple shape. Continue wrapping the yarn around the apple until it is completely covered and you can no longer see any cardboard (except the stem and leaf). When you are done, cut the string and tuck the other end into the yarn at the back of the apple. Use the markers to color the stem and the leaf.
Have fun creating these cute little yarn apples!
