Chomp, chomp, chomp—yum, yum, yum! Is there anything tastier than a ripe red apple? Your little ones will enjoy the fruits of their labor with this ABC Craft for the letter A. You can be sure there won’t be any bad apples in this bunch!

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used green, light green, red, off-white, dark brown, and black)
  • A Is for Apple Craft templates
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil, marker, and scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter A Craft

  1. Print the A Is for Apple Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter A and the apple pieces onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter A and apple pieces.
  4. Glue the apple core onto a full sheet of card stock (we used green, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Glue the letter A over the apple core.
  6. Draw veins on the leaf, tuck the leaf and stem under the top edge of the apple, and glue in place.
  7. Glue the seeds to the apple core.

Usha,
I’m not sure what you are asking for. This is a lower case letter craft. Is there something else you need?

I can hardly wait to add this project to my apple unit next fall!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

I hope you have lots of fun with your apple unit! Our Picture Books for Fall blog post includes a fun book about apples and we have a fun Nutty Apple Nachos snack recipe that would be a good go-along as well.

So fun! We will be starting the pre reading level with our youngest this week. 😁 Our homeschool schedule with three kids is going to be a new balancing act for me, but I hope I will be able to squeeze in some of these cute letter crafts. We are so happy to have found your curriculum! It has helped our middle child immensely… he struggled with reading in kindergarten (public school), to the point he hated school. All About Learning has help him to rebuild his confidence, and he enjoys learning again.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Jaci,
I’m so happy to hear that All About Learning has helped your middle child to have confidence and enjoyment in learning! That is so wonderful!

It can take a bit of time to work out the logistics of adding a new child into the mix of homeschooling; I completely understand. This blog post, Teaching Reading and Spelling to Multiple Kids, has some ideas that may help. One thing that may help is preparing everything for the letter crafts ahead of time so you can do one whenever you and your child are both ready. The Pre-reading level starts with capital letters and our Upper Case ABC Crafts download lists everything you need to spend an afternoon preparing for a month or more worth of craft times.

Let me know if you have any questions or need anything.
