Fall is the time of year that people naturally stop to think about how grateful they are for many different things in their lives. Being a mom of two young kids, I immediately think about my children’s grandparents and how they help us out so much throughout the year. I wanted my boys to make something for them to show our gratitude for their love, guidance, and support that they offer us!
Personalized Apple Keepsake Gift
This sweet piece of apple home decor isn’t complete without the finishing touches from your child. Paint your child’s thumb and stamp 5 apples on the apple tree branches. Add a document frame and you have an adorable piece of art that looks great hung on the wall! We got our frame from the Dollar Tree and it finished the piece off really nicely.
Customize the Gift
There are so many ways to customize this gift for the person you have in mind. Or just keep it simple and add apples from the grocery store or picked by your child at the apple orchard (if it’s late summer or early fall).
Try adding these items to the basket:
- buy or create an apple themed cookbook
- make a caramel apple basket or just add caramel by pouring dipping caramel into and glass jar and tie twine around the top of the jar
- make a DIY apple pie candle
- make homemade apple butter
- make apple cinnamon pancake mix

I hope you give this fun activity a try! I promise, your little nature lovers will love it as much as my boys.
