In need of some back-to-school material? Your kids are going to love making the Worm in Apple Paper Craft.
It’s super easy to make and fun throughout the whole year. Kids can open and close a tiny part of an apple to see the hidden worm.

We know that you’ll join us in crafting different Crafts for Kids (check out our Back to School Agamograph Template, and make your Printable Fall Quiet Book).
Today’s craft is a contagious one – a tiny worm peeking out of an apple; а supper silly and a super amusing craft to share with friends, huh?
And after you’re done, you can print out and color the Fruit Coloring Pages too.
When we see it, it brings smiles to our faces.
And we can’t stop playing with it.
It is not fun to find a moving worm inside a real apple, but it is super fun when we turn that into a craft.
What do you say?
So let’s go.
Have you already grabbed your tools?
How to Make a Worm in Apple Paper Craft
What you need:
- red cardstock or red color paper
- pale orange cardstock or pale orange color paper
- split pin
- neon pink color paper
- pale pink color paper
- white paper
- black liner
- brown cardstock or brown color paper
- circle puncher
- circle object (we used a small glass)
- ruler with circle shapes
Step by Step Tutorial
On the red cardstock, draw an apple shape.
Cut it out.
Draw an apple stem on the brown cardstock.
Cut it out.
Glue the stem on the apple.
Take the circle object and trace two circles – one on the red cardstock and one on the pale orange cardstock.
Cut the circles out.
Punch a circle on the left side of the apple.
Apply some glue on the backside of the apple, on the edges of the hole.
Do not apply glue to the bottom part of the hole. Leave that space glue-free.
Glue the pale orange circle on the back of the apple.
Push a split pin through the red circle and then through the apple as well. Now split the ends of the pin.
Make sure the red circle covers the hole completely.
The backside of the apple should look like this.
Check if the mechanism works.
Draw some pink circles both on the neon pink color paper and on the pale pink color paper.
Cut them out.
To make the worm, arrange and glue these circles together as shown.
Your worm is almost done.
Draw two tiny eyes and cut them out.
We really like using googly eyes for the worm, but they interrupt the mechanism. So we go with flat eyes.
Glue the eyes on the worm’s head.
Put some glue on the backside of the worm and glue the worm inside the apple.
We hope you enjoyed making this craft and hope it brought you many laughs.
See you soon with new projects.
