I can’t believe it. Back to School is almost here. We are frantically shopping, planning, and mentally preparing for this madness. It’s our first time. My daughter’s first time as a student and my first time as a school mom. But wait! I thought my precious little girl was just born last week? Where the heck did the last 4 1/2 years go? And this is only preschool! What chaos in my head will occur next year when she starts kindergarten? I wasn’t prepared for this emotional roller coaster! In an effort to slow down and enjoy this time, as well as the time we have left of my daughter being home with me all day, we decided to do an Apple Tree Craft.
Supplies For Apple Tree Wreath:
Step One: Cut out the center circle of the paper plate, leaving a ‘wreath ring’.
Step Two: Cut the green tissue paper into small squares (or you could have your child rip the paper also).
Step Three: Crinkle the tissue paper scraps and glue onto the paper plate ring, ensuring the paper plate is completely covered.
Step Four: Glue on pom poms for the apples.
Step Five: Cut a tree trunk from the brown construction paper and glue onto the back of the wreath.
Step Six: Tie on string or ribbon and hang wreath up.
It is a simple craft, but it turned out so cute.
Even though it is stressful and came into my life out of no where, it seems, I am excited for our new adventure. My daughter is growing up to be such a wonderful little girl and I can’t wait to see how much she grows and learns at preschool! Bring it on life!
Our inspiration for this craft was not only back to school and fall, but Project: Recycle & Create. The theme this month was scrap paper or torn paper. If you liked our Apple Tree Wreath Kids Craft you’ll probably love these crafts for kids too!
