I think I've discovered the secret of working with Styrofoam balls. The size of the Styrofoam should be consistent with the size of the child. The younger the kid, the smaller the Styrofoam surface area should be. These small Styrofoam balls can easily be turned into apples or pomegranates for this holiday season.

Materials

Small Styrofoam balls
Red and green plastic pushpins (look for plastic pushpins)

Directions

  1. Place pins all around the Styrofoam ball.
  2. Add three or four green pins to the top for the stem of the apple.

Variations:

Green pushpins for green apples.
Yellow and black pushpins for a bee.
