Toilet Paper Tube Apple Craft

A is for apple! And apples make me think of autumn. September is still a month away, but I can hope that the heat of August goes by fast! My daughter and I have been busy making apple crafts recently in preparation for the upcoming change of the seasons. For a fun craft with your child, try making apple cores with toilet paper tubes, paint, construction paper, and pipe cleaners.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Paint the outside of the entire toilet paper tube white.
  2. Paint five black seeds around the center of the white toilet paper tube.
  3. Cut two large circles from the red construction paper.
  4. Glue the top and bottom of the toilet paper tube to the center of each red circle.
  5. Cut a two-inch piece of green pipe cleaner.
  6. Twist the pipe cleaner piece into ovals with a point at one end.
  7. Poke the pointed end of the pipe cleaner through the center of one red circle.
  8. Use a dollop of glue to secure the green pipe cleaner to the red circle.
  9. Display the toilet paper tube apple craft.
