Arm Print Apple Trees

"The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day." - Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess

SO...we had time to do this classic! 

  • Have child sign and date their paper (easier to do first)
  • Mix brown paint (if you don't have it, I don't):                                                                                 1/3 yellow to 2/3 red to dab of blue
  • Palate green paint and red paint
  • Have child paint their forearm brown and hand green

  • Stamp onto appropriate sized paper
  • Have child paint their other hand green and stamp in the white parts to fill in
  • Have child do finger print stamps of red and/or yellow for apples

Art: creative expression, painting
Social: following directions

Science: apples grow on trees
Math: counting apples on the tree, measuring arm length

Check out the other apple theme posts...Apples Theme - Fun Stuff with songs, fingerplays, etc. and Apples Theme with FREEBIES: a pre-writing worksheet and apple anatomy poster to print.
