Thank you for joining our Fun for Fall Challenge! We're kicking things off with a really fun and easy activity for fall-- apple stamping! All you have to do is cut an apple in half and let your toddler or preschooler take it from there!

Materials Needed:  
 Apples
 Knife
 Paint (ink would probably work too)
 Paper
 Optional Supplies (paint brush and paper plate)


We made apples and pumpkins!


Here's the finished art! I painted stems and leaves on the apples to finish them off. For the pumpkins, I painted the top two faces to show my son an example and he painted the faces on the bottom two!




Has your child ever been apple or pumpkin picking? Are you planning on taking your kids apple or pumpkin picking this year?

If you haven't signed up for the Fun for Fall Challenge yet, you can do so here.

I remember doing this as a kid! I haven't done it with my girls yet, because I haven't had the extra money for paint. Hopefully this next paycheck I can get a few art supplies for my girls!

cute idea!  I am planning on taking my DS apple and pumpkin picking next month...will probably make two different trips out of it.  It'll be his first time going.  I love those fresh donuts and cider!

We've already been apple picking this fall and oddly enough did apple stamps last week. 

We went to a pumpkin patch yesterday and picked a few pumpkins but will do our main pumpkin picking this weekend/ next weekend. 

I will definitely have to do the apple stamps to make them look like JOL's, stinking adorable!

That's adorable! We're taking Violet (shes almost 2) to the pumkin patch this year. We're in Texas so there aren't apple orchards.
