Apple Wreath craft

9 Dec

For the Letter of the week, A: After having made the lowercase ‘a’ as an apple, I wanted to do something more with the actual apple.

So my daughter and I made an Apple Wreath.

Get your child to make a thumb print on each apple with green paint to denote a leaf. Once the paint is dry, cut the apples out with the leaves.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
