Apple print caterpillar
Apple print caterpillar


  • 1 apple
  • sharp knife
  • paint and paint brush
  • paper
  • googly eyes



  • Simply cut the apple in half from top to bottom and blot any excess moisture from apple on a tea towel.
  • Brush on paint in your colour choice then stamp out your animal shape, reapplying paint every 2-3 stamps.
  • I made a caterpillar and used a small wedge of apple for the feet and another for the antennae.
  • Stick on googly eyes or draw them on.
