There are a few different ways to do this activity. You can either make edible apples using fondant or marzipan or just use play dough in which case the kids can obviously not eat their creations.


  • Play dough, marzipan or fondant
  • Red food coloring (if you are making edible apples then try and find natural food coloring)
  • Mint leaves with stem


  1. Roll a ball and create an apple shape.
  2. Stick a piece of mint on the top.

Apple Tree Craft

toilet paper craftThis apple tree is made with a toilet paper roll and construction paper (we actually used an old cereal box but you could use construction paper too).  The leaves are made with tissue paper but you can also stick real leaves on or just cut out leaves from green paper.

What you will need to make an apple tree:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Green tissue paper
  • Green and red stickers or green and/or red paper to cut out apples
  • Brown paint
  • Paint brush
  • scissors


  1. Paint the toilet paper roll brown.
  2. Cut the top of the tree and decorate.
  3. Cut two slits on the top of the toilet paper roll and insert the top of the tree.

Shiny apple made with sequins

Apple Gift Cards

Inside you can ask each kid to draw a picture, write a letter to someone (a teacher or grown will probably need to help) or draw pictures of other objects that start with the letter a.

Apple Prints
