As part of our focus on the letter A (yes we have finally started). We decided to to some apple printing. I cut an apple in half & put out 2 plates one with red & one with green paint on. The boys each chose a piece of coloured paper (thick paper works well) & dipped their apple half's in the paint & began to print. They did really want to sweep the apples across the paper but I tried to encourage them to lift the apple straight up to give an apple shape.
