    Paper Apple Craft

    Paper Apple Craft

    My daughter and I have been busy making apple crafts in anticipation of autumn. Plus A is for apple, making apple crafts perfect for learning about the alphabet. For a fun and easy craft to make with your child, use construction paper and pipe cleaners to make apples.
