Using this simple apple and paint activity, you can work on patterning with colours. You can also fold your paper in half and work on symmetry, trying to make each side the exact same.
- An Apple
- A Knife
- A Cutting board
- Paint Brushes
- Cut your apple in half.
- Using a fall colour, paint your apple half using your paint brush. We find this works best if you dab the paint on, similar to using bingo dabbers rather than moving your paint brush back and forth.
- Once your apple half is covered in paint, press the apple firmly against the paper and hold for a few seconds.
- Repeat this all over your paper, either making a pattern of colour or designing your own details!
Once you have painted your apple half, you can begin to mix the colours on your apple (red, yellow, orange, and green to make it look like a real apple with different colours.)
