Rosh Hashanah Apple Print Art Activity for Kids
Dipping apples in honey is a Rosh Hashanah tradition that children and adults share. Celebrate this Jewish high holiday with a kids’ craft that takes the apple and honey dipping to a new, and artsy, level. Instead of real apples, your child will make their own stamper. And instead of honey, your child will use Paint. This activity is an easy craft to adapt for children of all ages. Younger kids can use finger or tempera paints, while older kids, tweens or teens can use permanent fabric paints to dress up tote bags t-shirts or cloth napkins.
- Kitchen sponges
- Tempera paint or fabric paint
- Paper, fabric, t-shirts, napkins or anything else that your child wants to print on
- A paintbrush
- Draw an apple onto the sponge.
- Cut the apple out.
- Pour the paint onto a paper plate or paint palette. Use red or green (or a combination of the two) for the apple’s color. Add a second pool of green paint to make the apple’s leaves.
- Press the sponge stamper into the paint.
- Pick the stamper up and press it onto the paper or the fabric. Lift the stamper to reveal the print.
- Use the paintbrush to add two leaves to the top of the apple.
Repeat as many times as your child wants. They can also make an alternating red and green apple pattern, creating a holiday design!
