To make the prints, dip cut sides of apple halves into the glue/paint.

The kids will love making this early foray into printmaking!  For some fun variations, do some of the prints with paint.  Using paint will allow the apple prints to show more detail in the core.  Another variation would be to cut the apple across the center horizontally instead of vertically.  This will give you the star shape in the middle of your print.  It will look less like an apple and more like a circle with a star in the center.  Both are equally fun and doing the different apple cut will give some great variation to your preschooler’s artwork!  Have fun!
