This apple basket is easy for little hands to carry around. For preschoolers, you may want to put letters or words on the apples and hide them in their room. Then, your child can pick the apples and say what the letter or sight word is on the paper apple as a fun fall craft game.

Instructions To Make A Paper Plate Apple Basket :
1. To make the paper plate basket, Use a straight edge to draw a line across the center of a paper plate. Cut out a window using the straigh edge as the bottom. Lay plate 1 on top of plate 2 and trace the line and cut it out too.
2. Color the paper plates orange on both sides.
3. Using a black marker, draw horizontal lines about 1 half inch apart. Stagger the veritical lines between the horizontal lines like brickwork.
4. Lay the two pieces together to form a basket and use a stapler to permanently attach two pieces together.
5. Fill it with green tissue paper.
6. Draw apples onto red construction paper. Use the black marker to color in the stem. Cut out 2-3 depending on the sizes. Add them to your paper plate apple basket.
7. Decorate your paper plate basket by cutting out a small apple. Add a smile to your paper apple and glue it to the center fo the basket.
