Autumn Apple Painting

We were lucky enough to be given some lovely small autumn apples. As we had a surplus I thought it would be great to use some of them in our paintings. I first cut open the apples in different directions and the boys compared the shapes that they saw inside, one of them thought he could see a space rocket!

We then chose some autumnal colours and set about the creative task. One thing that I had not foreseen was that paint sticks the apples to the paper so our youngest kept looking surprised when he could not lift his apple, he didn't mind though and created a nice picture by sliding his apple around the paper. 

Once we had some nice prints, the painting turned into more of a messy play session with the children choosing to paint their hands and make autumnal hand prints instead!
