Scented Apple Prints

Written by  Colleen

G & I are having a sick day and we needed a little fun! I grabbed some easy supplies we had on hand and decided to do Apple prints!

I wanted to make them a little extra special to perk up G. Sooooo, we made scented paint! It's super easy to do and you can add any spices you'd like.

Here's what you need: 

  • Apple (cut in half)
  • Red paint
  • Green paint 
  • Paper plates
  • Toothpicks
  • Cinnamon 
  • Paper

scented apple print materials

Put your paint on your palettes (paper plates) and sprinkle cinnamon on top of each color. Mix with toothpick. Dip your apples into the paint & stamp on the paper! Simple & fun!

When the paint dries it smells good too!

(Note: G loved the scented paint so much we tried a few others too! We painted with red/cinnamon paint, yellow/ginger paint, and orange/cumin paint too!)
