Applehead Dolls Time: 30 minutes Materials: Apples ½-inch diameter dowels or sticks table salt cotton balls or wool paring knives and carving tools Procedure: First peel and core the apple. Use the carving tool to carve facial features on the apple: eyes, nose, mouth and ears. Place the dowel/stick into the bottom of the core and pack with cotton balls or wool.
