Fall is a great time for crafting and making memories together with your children! The Apple Tree Crafts below are a mess-free, hassle-free, and “no glue” solution to creating wonderful crafting experiences with kids!
Wikki Stix Fall Handprint Apple Tree Craft
Brown Super Wikki Stix, Brown/Green Wikki Stix for the apple stem/leaf, Mounting Paper, and Red, Green, or Yellow Pompoms.
Have the children use Super Wikki Stix to trace around the forearm/handprint of their nondominant hand. Cutting out handprints with scissors is a difficult fine motor task, especially for younger children. The Super Wikki Stix will adhere to the mounting paper and make it easier to create the “tree” for a lasting handprint memory craft.
To create the apples: Have the children make a ball or spiral from one single strand of Wikki Stix and place it on the backside of the chosen pompom color. The Wikki Stix will adhere the
pompom to the mounting paper and no glue will be necessary. If desired, the children can make an apple stem and leaf for the pompom apples from brown and green Wikki Stix.
*Note – be sure to date the craft to remember when the handprint was created!
Wikki Stix “Twisted” Fall Apple Tree Craft
Brown/Green Wikki Stix and Red, Green, or Yellow Pompoms.
Have the children twist several strands of Wikki Stix together to form the textured tree (see photo). The apples for the tree are created in the same manner as the apples in the hand print
tree (see instructions above).
If desired, the children can make an apple basket from the brown Wikki Stix to decorate their tree craft.
Wikki Stix Apple Tree Paper Bag Craft
Brown Paper Bags, Brown/Green Wikki Stix, and Red, Green, or Yellow Pompoms.
Give the children one paper bag per craft. The children can create any kind of tree desired on the front of their bag with the brown/green Wikki Stix. The apples are created in the same
manner as the apples for the handprint tree craft (see instructions above).
The children can use their bags to “hunt the house” for colored items that correspond to the color of apples on their craft. It is a simple and fun fall tree craft to make!
This fall, let Wikki Stix help create fun and hassle-free crafting memories with your kids! The apple tree crafts will make great fall displays or gifts from kids to others!
