My kids love to paint, and with zillions of apples in the house, I thought we’d try stamping out some apple prints. Olivia still wants to put everything in her mouth, and I didn’t want to confuse her by telling her should couldn’t eat the paint-covered apple, so she used her fingers.
Ethan and I used apple halves to make the prints, and we used our thumbs to make leaves at the tops and when they were dry… ok, ok, I cheated a teeny bit on one and used a paintbrush (not shown), heehee! Ethan also tried making one using his fist (center), and thought that was pretty fun, too.
When the paint was dry, I cut them with craft scissors to give them a pretty edge – and now we have some pretty cards to send to far-away aunties and grandparents.
