This first big apple has a smiling “emoji-style” face that your young children and even older kids will love!

Remind your kids that not all apples are red apples. Encourage your student to try different colors – like yellow, green, pink, or a mix.

Then get those fine motor skills going, and start coloring!

This fall coloring page showcases a basketful of apples. 

Somebody must have gone apple picking!

Tell your student that apple orchards often grow many different types of apples, so all of this tasty fruit likely didn’t come from the same apple tree.

There could be a red delicious apple, a green apple (Granny Smith!), a pink lady, a gala, and more! Use different shades of red, pink, green, and yellow to show the varieties of apples in the basket.

Uh-oh! It seems took a big bite out of this juicy apple!

Maybe offer some *crunch* sound effects to remind your kids what a bite out of a crisp apple sounds like. 

What color is the inside of an apple? Is it the same as the outside? What color should the stem and leaf be?

Help the student find dark brown and green in their crayon box for some color recognition work!

Oh, dear! This large basket full of apples has toppled over! It must have been too full.

Can your student count all the apples on the page? Asking your child to act out what happened is a great way to have a little extra fun with this coloring sheet.

Fill up a basket with socks, cotton balls, legos, or whatever you have on hand and make up all kinds of scenarios for what happened. 

Was someone just walking along and they tripped? Did something jump out and scare them? Did they see something really exciting and drop the basket?

Your kids will love acting it out over and over – and of course, coloring it!

One look at this page and your child will likely want to get out a real apple and start stacking too!

It might also be a good time to get out a much-loved favorite book – 10 Apples Up On Top. This Dr. Seuss classic tells the hilarious tale of three animals friends balancing more and more apples on their head.

Have a bag of apples on hand to practice stacking! Of course, it’s difficult to stack any irregularly shaped 3-D objects, but it’ll be fun trying!

This apple pie coloring page is a great way to introduce all the different things that can be made out of apples!

Applesauce, apple turnovers, apple muffins, apple fritters, apple crumble – what is your child’s favorite?

Has your child ever eaten and/or made a caramel apple? 

This candied apple coloring page is a fun way to introduce the food! If your child is unfamiliar with it, consider showing them a picture or video of carmel apples to help him color it the correct colors.

Your child could of course color these apples in any rainbow of colors she likes!

Integrating Your Coloring Pages into Your Homeschool Curriculum

Now that you have a variety of apple-themed coloring pages, here are some ideas on how to integrate them into your homeschooling routine:

  1. Daily Warm-Up: Start the day with a coloring activity to help your children transition into the learning mindset. It’s a gentle way to begin the day and can serve as a warm-up before diving into more structured lessons.
  2. Themed Units: Use the coloring pages as part of a larger unit on apples. This could include reading books about apples, visiting an apple orchard, and even conducting simple science experiments like observing how apples turn brown when exposed to air.
  3. Storytelling Prompts: Encourage your children to tell a story based on the images they are coloring. For example, what adventures might the dancing apple have? This can enhance their creativity and narrative skills.
  4. Art Projects: Extend the coloring activity by incorporating other art materials. Use glitter, stickers, or even pieces of fabric to decorate the coloring pages. This can make the activity more engaging and help develop their artistic skills.
  5. Cooking and Baking: As mentioned earlier, pair the apple pie and caramel apple coloring pages with a real-life cooking activity. This hands-on experience can make the lesson more memorable and teach practical skills.
