Adorable Apple Tree Craft

Are you looking for a sweet fall-themed craft to occupy your toddler or preschooler? You’ve come to the right place. Fall is coming and one of our favorite fall activities is going apple picking. There is nothing like freshly picked apples to munch on, beautiful sweater weather and supporting your local farmers. Here is a great apple tree craft to do after your trip to your local orchard.

My childhood home was located right beside an apple orchard and a lot of my cherished childhood memories involve apples. The orchard was our own personal playground.

Because of this, I love apple picking and we have taken Hannah to a local orchard since she was born. We have a lovely organic orchard nearby which has a playground, cider press and even pigs! We also love to eat all kinds of apples, but best of all is an apple freshly picked off a branch!

This year, we’ll do some baking, make our own applesauce and do lots of apple pie imaginative play with this play dough invitation!

Hannah loved this craft, especially adding the paint for the tree leaves and of course, the apples.
