Step 2

Cut out some long red paper strips. (approximately 1.5 cm width)

Step 3

Make marks on the paper strips approximately 5.5 cm apart.

Step 4

Cut the paper strips along those marks and you will get several pieces of paper.

You can let your kids do this step and this is an excellent way for them to master some basic scissor skills. Always make sure that the kids are handling scissors under the supervision of grown ups. Younger kids may not be able to cut exactly along those marks and that is perfectly fine.

Now, for each paper piece, apply glue at one end and stick the other end on it to make a small paper roll. Try to make them all of the same size if you want the apple to have a uniform look. But it is perfectly okay even if they have different sizes or shapes.

Apply glue along the outline of the apple template and start sticking the paper rolls. You can use liquid glue or glue stick for this step.

Step 5

Once the outline is finished, start filling the inner part. For this step, it is easier to apply a liquid glue and spread it throughout rather than using a glue stick. If you use glue stick, there is a chance you may squash the outer paper rolls.

Step 6

Cut out a small square piece (approx. 5 x 5 cm) of green paper. Fold it in accordion manner from one corner to the other. Cut those two corners a bit to form a curved shape. Hold the bottom folds firmly together to form a leaf shape.

Step 7

Apply glue behind the leaf and stick it on top of the apple we made from step 5. You can gently tuck in the bottom of the leaf between two paper rolls. Similarly, make one more leaf and stick it.
