Paper Strip Apple Craft
Apples, school, fall and kids all go together. This paper strip apple is a fun craft project to give to your favorite teacher or just to make for yourself. It is also a project that works for groups where each child makes their own.
When we look at a red apple, it’s absorbing colors from the sunlight. It absorbs all the colors of the rainbow—except for red. The red light reflects off the apple and our brain and eyes work together to let us know what color we are seeing. Source: Ask Dr. Universe – Why are apples red?
