Welcome the kids back to school with this adorable 3D Paper Apple Book. Kids will love flipping through the pages their first day of school to see photos, encouraging quotes, and sweet notes from mom or dad.

I made each of my kids one and they were delighted with their apple book. It felt good to start our school year right with a smile and positive spirit.

These cute apple books aren’t just for back to school, but make cute seasonal Fall or Autumn apple craft for kids. The free template makes it easy to print and assemble. We used staples (so easy!) and kids can make their own apple book using any color paper they choose. They can gift them to friends, teachers, write notes, or use them as cute fall decor in the home.
