After series of trials and errors, we finally discovered the tattoo your mother would approve. In fact, she might think it’s quite cool. Let us introduce you to the apple tattoo! Use this experiment to share the wonderful apple with your friends, teachers, leaders, and make it personal!
DISCLAIMER – You can try using different varieties, but we found this experiment works best with macintosh apples.
Here is what you do:
Step One – Buy a macintosh apple at the grocery store. It is best if they are a little green.
Step Two – Find or buy some stickers and place them on the less ripe side of the apple. The color could be green or yellow on that side.
Step Three – Place your apple in a well lit window with the sticker side facing the sun. Leave it there for about a week.
Step Four – Remove your stickers to see your new tattoo!
All apples ripen and darken in the sun. For macintosh apples, this causes the green color to change to a red. This color change creates a huge contrast, great for apple tattoos. So use this little experiment to create, eat nutritiously, and share with others the beauty of fall color changes!
