Craft – An Apple Tree

Johnny Appleseed’s birthday is coming up!!!!

When I was teaching 2nd grade, I think my class spent more time in the month of September studying apples than we did learning all of the other things that I was supposed to be teaching.

I just really love apples.

It wouldn’t be September for me without including a few apple activities here at Happy Home Fairy, so let me introduce you to what the Happy Buddy and I put together yesterday!So cute, right?!

And unbelievably simple.

I wish I had a tutorial for you, but it’s hard to craft with a 2-year-old – let alone draw it out by taking pictures of each step.

With pom-poms flying across the room and Elmer’s glue exploding all over the refrigerator, a mom has to work fast!

Plus, this craft came together so quickly that it’s kind of a no-brainer.What you will need to make your own tree:

  • An empty toilet paper roll
  • Brown paper
  • Green paper (ours was some scrapbook paper I found in a stash somewhere)
  • Red pom-poms
  • Glue


Step 1 – Wrap the toilet paper roll with the brown paper and glue to seal.

Step 2 – Cut a small slit in either side of the toilet paper roll.

Step 3 – Cut a bushy tree shape from the green paper.

Step 4 – Glue pom-pom apples on the green paper and allow to dry.

Step 5 – Slip the tree top into the slits on the toilet paper roll.


Johnny would be so proud!

And here is a picture of the tree the Happy Buddy made for Mom-Mom.He wanted her apples to be rainbow because she is so magical.

Happy Apple Tree Craft-ing! :-)
