Apple-Print Bag

Source: Kids Good Things 2006


Apples aren't just for eating. The cut side of an apple half, dipped in candy-colored paint, can be stamped onto otherwise ordinary canvas tote bags and backpacks.


  • Apple

  • Knife

  • Paintbrush

  • Paint

  • Markers (optional)


  1. Cut an apple in half from top to bottom. Make sure the cut is smooth and flat. Use a paintbrush to apply the paint evenly over the cut side of the apple.

  2. With the apple half, cut side down, stamp the surface of the object you want to decorate. The more times you stamp, the less vivid the print will be, so reapply paint, or use the other half.

  3. Use additional apple halves to print with different colors, if desired. To draw stems and leaves, use black or green markers (or paint).
