The life cycle of an apple dangler, is quite lovely when completed. Younger children can make this as a flat project, older students can add extra pizzazz, by making it 3D. To do that, simply glue 2 treetops and 2 tree trunks together on the fold. The 3D apple is made up of a red, yellow and green apple. The blossom is a coffee filter, with the edges colored by a pink marker.
