Johnny Appleseed Apple Tree Craft

Here's a fun hand print apple tree craft in honor of that all American hero, Johnny Appleseed.


  • white paper
  • green construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • tree trunks cut from brown construction paper
  • small red paper circles of apple cutouts if you have them
  • pot hat cut outs
  • glue


  1. Trace and cut out two pair of hand prints for each child from green construction paper.
  2. Glue on trunk and hand prints on white paper to make your tree.
  3. Glue on red circles or apples onto the tree.
  4. Next to the tree, glue on Johnny Appleseed's pot hat.
  5. Draw Johnny Appleseed to match the hat.
  6. Color and add details like sun, clouds, birds etc.

Orignally, this craft called for gluing on a blue paper background, but for this one, I wanted to encourage their creativity by drawing Johnny Appleseed into the picture, so I used white paper. Or, you could prepare a paper cutout of Johnny Appleseed from a coloring page and kids could color and then glue on. Also you don't have to let the tree hang off the edge of the paper as shown.
