We’re sailing right along in the Craft Through the Bible Series. We are still in Genesis (Hey! There’s a lot of crafting to be done!), and today our passage of reference is Genesis 3:1-6. Now, before you say it, I will. I am aware that the Bible does not explicitly say that the piece of fruit was an apple. But most kids automatically correlate an apple with the piece of fruit, so that is what we are doing today: a Pony Bead Apple Craft for kids. The craft is simple to complete and only requires three supplies.
I have to admit that I am not 100% convinced that what I have created definitely looks like an apple. My daughter immediately recognized it as an apple. Plus, I’ve discovered that most kids have fun and do the most learning during the creation process, and more often than not, they really don’t care what the final piece looks like. So I’m going to roll on with this Pony Bead Apple.
- Fuzzy stick (a.k.a pipe cleaner)
- Red pony beads
- Green pony beads
String the fuzzy stick 3/4 of the way full of red pony beads. I promise that my beads are red. They are the translucent kind, making them not really look red. Bring the ends together and twist.
String green beads on the ends, leaving a small portion on each end for tying.
Fold the ends back and twist them to one another and to the apple.
My kids have this little toy radish that looks almost exactly like this which is completely clouding my judgment. But, if you’re working with small kids, and you’re looking for a simple craft to support your Bible story, then this one will fit the bill.
