Stained Glass Apple Printing

This is a lovely way to print with apples from the
Kiwi Crate blog. Rather than just making apple pictures, this version uses tracing paper, so that the finished result is semi transparent.

Using slices across the middle of an apple, it helps children to become familiar with the inside of the apple. It makes a pretty star shape where the pips are. You can take a moment to allow children to examine the slices and look for differences at the top, middle and bottom of the apple.



The article has detailed picture instructions for each stage and at the end you produce a sweet mobile or window hanging which really does look pretty in the light.

Combine this with finding out how apples grow, reading our Apple story of the month, or making an apple recipe!



You can find the original article with all the instructions here.

The example in the picture below are all 'Red' - strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries and tomatoes, but there are sheets for other colour groups ...
