Button Apple

21 Sep

This craft is one of my favorites.  I love it for a couple reasons.  Reason #1- it’s cute.  Reason #2 – it’s time consuming (for your kids, not for you :)).  Reason #3- It works on fine motor skills.  Reason #4- You can do it with any shape or theme.

Here’s the Scoop:

You’ll Need:

Construction Paper or Tag Board





Cut out your favorite shape from a piece of construction paper.  I chose an apple, but a tree, leaf, star, etc.. would all be cute.  We made button ornaments for Christmas last year which were a huge hit, you can find them by clicking HERE.  Let your child glue and glue and glue.  TADA…  So easy!  So cute!  So fun!

Apple Season

11 Sep

This weekend we enjoyed some amazing summer temps.  The boys were swimming in the lake most of the day Saturday and Today, it was great!  I have a feeling it might have been one of our last swims of the season!  We also noticed that the apples are just about ripe on the tree, which reminded me that apple season is upon us!  YEAH!  I love apple season.  I love apple cider, apple pie, apple sauce, carmel apples, mmmmm…   We made an adorable apple craft, as well.  This one was pretty quick and easy!  I saw an image online of a button watermelon and I figured you could do the same thing with an apple.  I would really like to do the watermelon, as well, so we might do that once we pick the melon’s we planted in the garden… OOO and a button pumpkin might be cute too…  Any ways, Here’s the scoop…

You’ll Need:

Red construction paper

White/cream construction paper

Red  & Green buttons


Glue (elmer’s)


I cut out an apple shape for the boys (older kids can cut their own apple, little kids could too actually and it might be pretty cute).  They glued buttons all over it…  Then we drew the stem with glue and also glued buttons for that… See, SO SO SO easy!  LOVE THAT!
