Seeds & Peels Collage craft

Touch on science and senses with a combined nature/art project that'll be the apple of your kids' eyes. Cook up more tasteful fun by making applesauce.

    With a Crayola® Washable Marker, draw an apple shape and stem on plain paper. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors.

    Spread newspaper over your work area. Paint the apple in your favorite color with Crayola Washable Kid's Paint and Paint Brushes. Dry.

  • 3.

    Ask an adult to peel a real apple, cut it in half sideways, and put the knife away in a safe place. Notice the star shape that appears in the center. Scoop out apple seeds with a spoon. Set seeds and peels aside to dry. Eat the apple, or make applesauce.

    Gather other seeds either from food you eat or by walking outside. When you go outdoors, go with an adult and wash your hands after collecting seeds.

    Notice how the apple peels change as they dry. After everything you collected is ready, glue on the dried apple peels and seeds with Crayola School Glue. Dry.

  • 6.

    Label different types of seeds with a marker. Explore your seed collage with both your eyes and your fingers. Notice differences in how seeds look and feel. How does the apple peel look and feel when it is dry? Does your collage have an apple smell?
