Here is a simple cut and paste activity for toddlers and preschoolers. This Kumon inspired printable activity works on a child’s visual perception. Mom will cut out the apples for toddlers, while preschoolers can try to cut out the apples themselves.
Apple Cut and Paste Activity
After reading the book, The Giving Tree, I was inspired to create an activity about trees and apples. I created this cut and paste printable for my toddler. It includes two pages. The one at the top of this post will require your child to paste the apples on to the corresponding white space. For older children you can even put a number on the correct spot (as well as a number on the apple) and have your child match it up.
The bottom picture is for younger children who would just like to freely paste the apples on any part of the tree.

– Cardstock. (You can use normal computer paper but I like to use card stock for extra durability)
– Laminator and laminating pouches (optional)
– A Glue stick (I always buy this pack at the beginning of the year for the year ahead.)
– Velcro dots (optional)
Preparing the material
Just print out the page you would like to use on to card stock. Cut it out. Then lay it out in front of your toddler or preschooler.

If you would like to re-use this activity then laminate the pieces and add velcro dots.
