In honor of the harvest season and Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year where you dip apples in honey to celebrate) I decided to try apple painting. They are selling "lunchbox" apples at my supermarket which are perfectly sized for a child's hand.

How We Did It

Apples & Paint
After slicing some apples in half, I placed some paint on a piece of foil and O dipped the apples in.

Then stamped onto paper.

He asked for purple, so I showed him how to mix red and blue to make it, and he decided that mixing colors was the coolest thing since sliced apples.

The final product, showing the progression from primary colors to the mixed paint apples is fun. I noticed that a thin layer of paint on the apple produces the best result.

Here is my attempt at the project - what an older child could achieve. The color blending turned out to be an unintentionally interesting effect. You can even make a fall placemat out of your art work by laminating it with clear contact paper.

After all that apple painting - we got hungry!
