Family Craft Time: Apple Honey Bowl

With Rosh Hashanah rapidly approaching, we’re on the hunt for more fun craft ideas that the whole family will enjoy. This one is very easy, and would be a great centerpiece for your table, and even travels well if you’re visiting friends.

Thanks to for this wonderful idea!

What you need:

  • Apples, small for slicing
  • Apple, a big one for the bowl (get a couple extra for practice!)
  • Lemon juice or quartered lemon
  • Cutting board
  • Apple slicer/corer with two handles
  • Serving plate
  • Paring knife (adults only)
  • Melon scoop/baller (or grapefruit spoon or apple corer)
  • Bowl for soaking apples slices in lemon water (optional)
  • Honey

How to make it:

  1. First, you’ll want to slice up the apples you’re going to be dipping. Using the two-handled apple slicer is an easy method, or you can supervise any method to slice up the apple you prefer.
  2. To keep your apples from turning brown while you’re working on the bowl, mix up a lemon water solution – one-part lemon juice to three-parts water. make sure you have enough to fully submerge your apple slices while you work.
  3. Next, pretend your big apple is a pumpkin and gut it the same way. Slice the top off with your pairing knife (parents, this is the step you’ll want to do) and scoop the insides out with a melon baller. Do your best not to poke holes in the side or bottom of the apple.
  4. Have your kiddos help finish the bowl by wiping the inside fully with a lemon wedge so it won’t turn brown.
  5. Then pour the honey into your newly created apple bowl and place it in the middle of a pretty serving dish. Drain and arrange your apple slices around the bowl.
  6. Dip and enjoy!
