Such a fun math activity for fall! (Math Patterns Using Apple Prints w/ FREE Printable)~ Buggy and Buddy


One of our favorite fall themed learning activities is making apple prints! It’s so easy to do and can be adapted for a wide variety of ages.

This year we used apple printing to make our own math patterns- such a fun, hands-on math activity for kids! And for children that are ready to create their own patterns on paper, this post also includes a free printable where kids can make their own apple patterns with crayons.

Math Patterns Using Apple Prints


Be sure to hold the apple from top to bottom rather than on the sides- you get a better grip!

5. Once the apple prints have dried, use a brown marker or crayon to draw a little stem on your apples. Cut out some little green leaves and glue them next to the stem.

Fall Math for Kids: Make patterns with apple prints



  1. Nice one.Apple prints look good. Will try this with my daughter though she may be a bit young to be this neat.

  2. This is a perfect fall math activity!

  3. Really like the idea of combing print art with maths. Will definitely try this with my daughter!

  4. Good thinking! 🙂 We did apple printing but we used it to make puppets! Will have to repost it from one of my closed blogs! Thank you for reminder! 😉

  5. I love activities that combine several subjects. Math couldn’t be more fun than this.

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

  6. This looks like an awful lot of fun! I’m pinning it to my Fall activity board so I can come back to it later. #MomsLibrary

    Thank you for your lesson. I sometimes cut out a chunk from the apple to make a handle the kids can grip. Two cuts from the top and two from the side.
