Looking for a fun apple craft for kids? Here’s a Free Printable Apple Tree that’s perfect for your preschool apple tree craft ideas!

Apple season is quickly approaching here in the Midwest. It’s always one of my favorite times of the year!

We like to visit a local apple orchard and pick apples fresh off the tree. (Okay, actually ….these days our local orchard is my mom’s house, but still, it’s a fun time!)

How to make Easy Preschool Apple Tree Craft

To make this easy apple tree craft, we printed out the free apple tree template onto white paper.

Next, color the apple tree. We colored the trunk of the tree brown and the leaves of the tree green.

This is a great way for kids to practice using their fine motor skills!

Once your tree is colored, it’s time to paint!

Pour a little bit of red paint onto a paper plate (or paper bowl).

Clip the pom pom onto the end of the clothespin.

Dab the pom pom into the red paint.

Then dot the apple tree with red circles of paint.

We also added some red apples to the ground as well for good measure.

Too cute! What a fun way to celebrate apple picking season!

This free apple tree picture is great for any of your apple picking season crafts.  

Here’s a few more ideas for next time:

– Use it as an apple tree coloring page – this printable can be used as simple coloring sheets for your apple theme.

– Color it and place it in a page protector and use it for a playdough mat. Have kids add red balls of playdough for apples.

– Glue little bits of red tissue paper to the printable apple tree, instead of painting it.

– Glue torn pieces of construction paper to it to create a one of a kind apple tree. There’s so many fun ways to use this free printable apple tree!

– Paint both the tree and the apples – you could use green paint to blog on for the leaves of the tree and red paint for the apples. I’d let it dry before you add the red apples to avoid color mixing!
