There’s a Worm in My Apple

Fall Worm in My Apple
An Activity for School-Age:

This fun craft is a great “hide-and-seek” activity and would go well with Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar book.

Before You Begin:

Consider cutting the plates out beforehand. Set out paintbrushes, pour paint into craft cups, and assemble other supplies before beginning.

Activity Goals:

Develop fine motor skills
Practice artistic expression


Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Cut an apple shape out of a paper plate.

STEP 2

Paint the apple shape red. Cut out a leaf and stem from construction paper and glue each onto the apple shape.

STEP 3

Once the apple shape is dry, cut a 1” slit in the middle of the apple.

STEP 4

Paint a green ring around another paper plate. Once dry, cut out an apple core shape.

STEP 5

Using one of the leftover edges from the apple core shape, cut out the green section to make a worm.

STEP 6

Affix a wiggly eye to one end of the worm and insert the other end in the slit in the middle of the apple. Affix with tape if necessary.
