How to Make a mosaic apple with your kids
Shelley Lovett of Childcareland shows us how to make a mosaic apple using colored construction paper. This is a fun to do project, which enhances a child's motor skills. The basic outline of the apple is available on the website. It can be printed out and then cut out. Shelley has used red, green and brown colored construction paper, the traditional colors for apple. But she also stresses that we should let children use whatever colors they prefer. It will make the project so much more fun. She dots the apple with glue and then sticks the small construction paper squares to fill the outline, red for the apple, green for the leaf and brown for the stalk. She then punches a hole on the top and puts a golden ribbon through it, so that it can be proudly displayed as a completed project!
