One of our all time favorite apple books is Apples by Gail Gibbons. She always has the best books with information about apples.

I love that there are so many different types of apples and colors. We all picked red for our apples. But you can just as easily make a green or yellow apple as well.

How we made our craft:

We started out by punching a hole in the foam ball top and bottom. We used a pencil for this. One you had the pencil in the ball we rolled it around to create a cone-shaped hole.

Once the hole was big enough we used our fingers to push it out a little more.

The next step was to put the model magic on the apple. One part I love about this is how you great in some great fine motor work pushing the model magic onto the ball. You push and switch it on the ball.

We put on the stem and leaf for our apples. We cut the pipe cleaner and pushed it into the top of the apples and pressing the leaf into the model magic.
