Apple print art is a classic that has been done for quite some time. I love simple art activities like this, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. However, over the years I noticed that the apple was hard for small hands to hold because the skin is slippery. Somewhere I found out about this nifty idea of carving a right into the apple. What a world of difference it made! Now our toddlers can enjoy apple print art, too! So, grab some apples and let’s get started.

Easy Apple Prints for Toddlers
What you will need:
- red tempera paint
- green tempera paint
- white paper or any color you choose.
- a sharp knife for the grown-up who will cut the apples.
Cutting the apple:
- slice the apple in half
- cut about 1/4 into each of the rounded sides to create a handle
- this gives you 2 apples that are ready to stamp
An invitation to make apple prints:
- pour red paint into trays, but keep it shallow so only the base of the apple gets covered
- place paper beside paint
Yes, that easy.
Some toddlers will stamp the apple.
