HOW TO MAKE A MESS FREE APPLE PAINTING

STEP 1. Trace a large apple shape of your choosing over cardstock and cut out the design.

STEP 2. Squeeze a blob of paint into the plastic bag. We used red and green paint to make our apple. Then release all the air from the bag and seal.

STEP 3. Choose whether to tape the plastic bag to the table OR to the cardstock. If you are taping the plastic bag to the table, tape the cardstock over the plastic bag. This will make it much easier for younger children to move the paint around.

STEP 4. Now time to get painting! Get your kids to squish and move the paint around the bag with their hands to fill the open space in the cardstock.
