Apple season has arrived and today I have an incredibly easy Apple Collage Craft to show you that’s perfect for very young children and preschoolers. Offering a fine motor work out with lots of painting, sticking, cutting and gluing, with the added benefit of encouraging children to explore and create with different textures within the theme of ‘the colour Red or Green’.

This is a great introduction into mix media art concepts, enabling children to use their imaginations to creativity reuse and recycle normal household materials within their art.

Paint the Apple Red, Green or a mixture of the two! I offered the girls a variety of tools to paint with including a paintbrush, roller and foam shapes to create interesting shapes within the paint.

I also supplied the girls with white paint to give them the opportunity to explore red light and dark shades through colour mixing.
