We have created quite a few apple crafts throughout the years, from easy pine cone apples to a paper plate and yarn apple basket for preschoolers and older kids. This apple core idea is one of our readers’ favorite. It may be because it’s so simple to make or because it looks great. Or maybe a combination of the two.
