Follow these directions and enjoy making a magnet craft that looks like an apple, complete with a worm!

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

 

Materials Needed:

Instructions:
Start out by tracing the lid onto the felt or craft foam. You can use red, yellow, or green to create different kinds of apples. Cut out the circle and glue it to one side of the lid.

Cut a 1-inch piece from brown chenille stem. Glue one end of this onto the back of the lid to be the apples stem. Using felt or craft foam, cut out a leaf or two and glue them onto the front top of their apple.

Cut another piece of chenille stem, about 1- to 2-inches long, whatever color you want your worm to be. Glue it onto the middle of the apple so it looks like a worm poking it's head out of the apple. Don't forget to add a wiggle eye! Let the apple lay flat until the glue is completely dry.

Finally, glue a magnet on the back of the apple. Once the glue is dry, hang up your apple magnet where ever you choose!
