Directions To Make Apple Stamp Coasters
After gathering supplies, an adult should use the knife to cut the apple in half.
Cutting the apple through the center will reveal the star inside.
Paint 1 half of the apple red.
Invite kids to press the apple onto a cork coaster.
Pull the apple up firmly to reveal the print.
Repeat with the rest of the coasters.
When the coasters are dry, stack them together and tie with a piece of twine or ribbon. Now kids have a cute gift to share with teachers, neighbors, or friends!
