I saw a neat sandpaper apple craft on Play At Home Moms and decided to try it out. This is a really neat website by the way with the whole concept behind it being to play one on one with your kiddos AND let them lead the play. I know I have a hard time with this, but am trying to get better, it is just so easy to want to take control!
I cut out the shape of an apple and had Monkey Girl colour it. I helped her out because she didn’t always colour dark enough.
Next I placed the apple face down on a peice of white computer paper and covered it with a dish towel. I then used a hot iron on the back for approximately 30 seconds.
This was the result! I probably should have gone for longer than 30 seconds, but either way, I think it turned out pretty neat!
Mr. Hockey came out while I was finishing up with Monkey Girl and then made one too, though focused on fall shapes (hockey stick, leaf, acorn) instead but I had misplaced my camera so didn’t get any photos of him in action. This is his final result.
