After our blog on Weekend Activities – Homemade Clay Impressions, we were requested by moms to share some more ideas to spend a free afternoon or evening with kids. So here comes next!

All you need is some newspapers to cover the floor, some sheets of white paper, a plate/palette, paints and apples!

Chop some apples in half, right through the centre in a straight line. To make it easy for your little one to grip the apple, you can stick a fork into it and voila! The apple has a handle now!

Now dip the apple into a puddle of paint and make impressions on a plain paper. Little kids are going to love making a pattern with different colours. It’s a great way to make them remember the names of the colours and also to make straight lines, diagonal lines and other patterns!

If your child is older (5.5 years upwards), you can make this even more fun! Ask your child to cut around the apples so that you have apple shaped cards. Now number the apples with a marker. Depending on the child’s capacity, you can ask your child to arrange them in ascending or descending order. If your child knows addition, subtraction, multiplication & division, you can give him/her math problems to solve using the apple shaped cards.

This activity is not only messy fun, but is great to teach concepts like colours & patterns to younger kids and for practicing math for older kids!

Do let us know if your child had a good time doing this!
