Have an adult cut an apple in half (from the top down).
Press the apple halves on a paper towel to drain away some of the moisture (without this step the paint doesn't stick right).
Paint the apple halves red or orange using a lot of paint.
Press the apples down hard on the construction paper and wiggle them just a little bit.
Paint on some stems using green paint to finish off your apple picture!
Optional: cut the apple in half across the middle and look for the star made by the apple seeds! Making apple prints with the apple cut this way is sometimes easier for younger children because they have a bigger area to grip onto without it interfering with the picture.
