Whether you’re still gearing up for the first day of school, or you’re already a few weeks in, this apple treat is a sweet and simple little bit of happiness. Stick a long skinny candy (or two) in the balloon, and with a few puffs, you can give your kids an apple to say “Good Luck” or “Good Job!” Add a few little bits of confetti in the balloon (before you blow it up) for an extra burst of festivity.

Materials needed: red balloons, green cardstock, apple leaf template, scissors, hole punch, skinny candies (tootsie roll shape).

Step 1: Place a few long skinny candies into a deflated balloon. If you want, add some confetti, too. Inflate the balloon slightly, ‘til it is about 5” or so. Tie the end.
Step 2: Print out the apple leaf from the downloadable leaf template. Cut out around the outline, and punch a hole near the stem side.
Step 3: Gently pull the tied end of the balloon through the hole punch. The weight of the candy should make the apple stand upright, with the leaf at the top.
