Monday's with Mika...Letter of the Week

A is for Apple Art

Shopping List

 2 sheets of white computer paper, red paint, brown paint, green paint, red marker, brown marker, decorative card stock, 2 paint brushes, tacky glue, Elmer’s glue, scissors and wet wipes.

How do I make A is for Apple Art?

Step One- Get your two sheets of white computer paper, paints, paintbrushes, and wet wipes ready.

Step Two- Paint child's forearm brown then press onto the left hand side of your white computer paper. This will create your tree trunk (Leave some white space on sides for the foliage and grass). Wipe clean with wet wipes.

Step Three- Paint child's palm green and press onto your second sheet of white computer paper. Press the palm down several times in a circle to make the tree look full of leaves. Wipe clean with wet wipes and allow time to dry.

Step Four- Paint your child's thumb red and press three times onto the green leaves on the tree. Let dry.

Step Five- Use your scissors to cut out the green palm print leaves and then glue on to the top of your forearm tree trunk.

Step Six- Use your brown marker to draw a smiley face on each of the apples. Then use the same marker to label your thumb print apples, palm print leaves and forearm print trunk.

Step Seven- Take your leftover computer paper and red marker and write the words to the apple song... "Way up high in the tree three red apples smiled at me... So I shook that tree as hard as I could, down came the apples...MMM... They're good! -Sung to the tune of This Old Man." Cut the words out in a square.

Step Eight- Take your scissors and decorative card stock and cut out a square then glue the square with tacky glue onto your paper next to your tree.

Step Nine- Take the square with the apple song and overlap onto the decorative card stock square and glue on. Use your red sharpie to write "A is for Apple" above the apple song and card stock squares. Underline the A's.

Step Ten- Use the brown sharpie to write your child's name and year the craft was made. The last thing you need to do is take you green paint and create a patch of grass at the bottom of your forearm tree trunk.
