Apple Printing

Kids ages 3 - 6 will love using an apple and red paint in this quick craft that creates fun, Rosh HaShanah-appropriate artwork.

Red paint
Construction paper


  1. Cut the apple in half length-wise.
  2. You can put a fork in the apple to make it easier to use as a stamp.
  3. Dip the apple in red paint and then stamp it all over your construction paper. 
  4. Display.

Helpful hints: 

  • If you cut the apple across in half, separating the top from the bottom, you will print a star pattern.
  • For greater durability, substitute a potato. Cut potato in half, use a cookie cutter or knife to shape, and print on on different types of surfaces to create holiday greeting cards, decorative tee shirts, ane unique wrapping paper.
