Apple Gift Ideas:
How to Use the Gift Tags
No matter what apple gift you grab some ribbon or washi tape will do the job.
For the apple gifts, the kiddos just wrote their name with a fun flair pen.
And, wrapped some washi tape around the apple to attach the tag. So easy!
How to Make a Pencil Topper
You will need four apple outlines and one apple stem.
Fold three of the apple outlines in half and glue them together.
If kids are making them, be sure to have them count to twenty so they stick together better.
Glue the stem on the other apple outline and put two dots of glue on each side.
Finally, put the apples on top and hold for twenty seconds.
After creating the topper, the students wrote their name on the gift tag and taped it to the pencil.
