Kids of all ages will enjoy celebrating apple season with this easy and fun Paper Plate Apple craft. Educators and parents appreciate this craft’s simplicity and use of basic craft supplies.
It’s one of our favorite activities that start with A. Most of all, the apples look adorable hanging from the refrigerator or classroom doors.
Let’s get started!
Apple crafts make great first day or school crafts or collective bulletin board crafts. Each kid can make an apple and then write their name in the middle to introduce themselves to the class and display on the apple tree bulletin board. While kids of all ages will enjoy this craft, it is particularly suited to preschool and Kindergarten age students due to its simplicity.

Easy Paper Plate Apple Craft for Kids
First, use the scissors to cut out a green leaf and brown stem from the construction paper.
Finally, use the tape to attach the leaf and stem to the back of the paper plate.
Alternatively, kids could use glue. If using glue, allow the paper plates to dry completely.
Apple Craft Variations
See? I promised this craft would be super easy and fun for kids—especially little ones.
Of course if you wanted to make craft time last a little longer, you could simply use white paper plates in place of the red plates, then invite children to paint them red, green, or yellow.
It would even be fun to connect all of the apples with colorful yarn to make a long banner!
