Apples and Pumpkins

Here is a fun way to create 3 dimensional apples and pumpkins for fall units. You will need cardboard toilet paper tubes, glue (I like to use hot glue), red or orange paint and green paper for leaves. To prepare, glue 3 tubes together to form a triangle. Hot glue the quickest way to get this job done.Have the children paint their fruit the desired color. I usually write their initials inside the tubes for easy identification.

I put a photo of each child on their apples for an apple bulletin board. The great thing about working with tubes is that they are free!
