This is an adorable black-and-white art project you can use to enhance baby’s tummy time – and big sibs might want to get in on the craft, too!
First, I cut an apple in half, and painted the halves with a thick coat of black paint.
Press the apples onto sturdy white paper. I made a row of three apples per page.
To vary the image, you can also paint in full apples with little stems.
I invited Travis to have a go at making a print, too, and we came up with this more abstract version:
For Veronika’s tummy time, we folded the papers in half so they could stand upright, and surrounded her with a little apple forest. These are great for pointing too, and talking about the image.
We also sang “One little, two little, three little apples…” etc. to the tune of Ten Little Indians. You could also make up stories about apples!
