Fall Crafts: Coffee Filter Apple Art for Kids

I was prepping this little apple art activity for my preschoolers this weekend when the Lil Divas decided they wanted to make it too. We haven't had much crafty time since school started so I happily obliged and I loved how they turned out. Which of course meant that I felt compelled to share it with you all. This one is so easy and the results so fun - perfect for kiddos of all ages.

Coffee Filter Apple Art


What You Need:
1. coffee filter (1 per apple)
2. red/yellow/green markers
3. spray water bottle
4. construction paper apple template
* for those asking for my apple template - feel free to grab it! *
Let me know if you have any issues with it.
5. glue


What To Do:
1. Have your apple template ready - I precut large apple templates for my preschoolers in red, yellow and green. I folded them in half and cut out the middle (see photo above).

2. Have child color coffee filter using all 3 colors - the more area they color the more vibrant your colors will be.


3. Using your spray water bottle, spray water directly onto the coffee filter. Try not to overspray the filter - a little water goes a long way with this. Observe your colors mixing with each other. The Lil Divas really enjoyed watching this part.


4. Let coffee filter dry - this doesn't take too long since they are thin. 


5. Glue coffee filter to back of apple template.


6. Check out your fab apple art and proudly display - this one definitely deserves a spot on the window, wall or fridge!


Enjoy!

and our favorite apple themed books list.

Update - I uploaded a PDF of the apple template I made and used for this activity. I emailed it to those that left e-mail addresses in the comments below requesting a copy but everyone should now be able to freely grab it when you click the link in the post. Let me know if you have any issues grabbing it. Enjoy!

    9. I loved your apples! I tweaked your idea and turned them into stained glass windows with my special needs class. After the coffee filters mix colors and are dry, rub a little bit of vegetable oil on them and let them dry again. Once they're dry for the second time, glue them between TWO apple cut outs. They can hang in your windows as stained glass.Thanks for the inspiration!
