STEP 2 - Add a handle to your apple stamps:



To make it easier for the kids to do the stamping, you could add a popsicle into the skinned side of the apples to create a handle.

STEP 4 - Let the stamping begin!


Now, prepare the paper where the kids will do the stamping. Our recommendation is to use cardstock or any white paper as long is on the thicker side.


Help your kids to grab the apples and press the apple's flat side into the paint. Then, press the painted apple onto their white paper.
