Paper Fruit

Tutti Frutti! Play fruit is a must for your play kitchen or grocery stand! Although there are many lovely wooden or soft ones available out there, if you love paper craft and making something yourself, try these printable templates to make some juicy fruit! They will also make colorful decoration in kids rooms.

There are templates for an apple, pear, banana, pineapple, kiwi, lemon, watermelon, strawberry, raspberry and blue berry. We could go on and on because we love all fruit!

How to make
3D Paper Fruits

Print and cut the templates, score the dotted lines with an empty ball point pen, then glue all the tabs. It’s always tricky to glue the last part that closes the shape so fold these last tabs outward so you can press against them,Β apply plenty of glue on both the tabs and the corresponding part to close. Then press the last part against these tabs and hold. If you have glue on both sides, they will glue together easily.

  1. Wow! So awesome! You’ve out done yourself! I’m gonna have to make some paper fruit! BTW, My nieces, nephew and I had a great time coloring your pirate pages. So much awesome!

  2. these are incredible! Love the vibrant colours too. Well worth getting printed on a digital press..
    EDIT: AND THANK YOU!!

  3. So bright and quirky! I’m studying nutrition and going to make some of these to stick on my hat at my college graduation!

  4. Gorgeous! Have you heard of “Handa’s Surprise”? I’m going to use some of these for when I do lesson extensions to the story. If you would like to add more fruit, that would be truly wonderful. πŸ™‚

  5. I had an issue when putting together the banana. All of the other fruit seemed to go together perfectly, but when I got to the banana I have not been able to piece them together. When I printed the template for the banana, it seems that the piece #2 is just a few centimeters shorter than the corresponding piece. When I did the first one, part of the stem just wouldn’t line up. I thought it must be because it was the first but the second one came out the same. Piece #2 is too small. Please let me know if you could help remedy this problem. I am using these fruit for a lesson and the banana is part of the lesson. Thank you for your time. PS. your contact page is broken, when you click contact me you get the Thank You for contacting us page, the contact form is missing.
    Have a great day.

  6. So stylishly simplistic ^0^
    I just have one problem with the apple and pear templates: for the stem, do I need to find my own accordingly colored paper, cut it , and roll it? Or is there something I’m missing?
    Also, is there a way to perhaps crop out other fruits for, say, the blueberry? This is in taking in the consideration that a single, lonely berry is never eaten alone, and that ink should be conserved if ever possible.

  7. These are simply wonderful! I am a nutritionist and I’ve been trying to find good fruit and veggie toys for my 14-month-old daughter to play with. So many fruit and veg toys are plastic, which I try to avoid. So these are going to be perfect for her. Also, we are traveling to the Caribbean in a couple of weeks and I’ve been looking for new, lightweight toys to take along. I’m going to print these and cut them out, then just take a tiny bottle of glue with me. Perfect! Thank you for sharing the fruits of your creativity with us. πŸ˜‰

  8. I’ve decided to use these as ‘favour bags’ for my kid’s first birthday. I’m thinking I could just about squeeze a biscuit and a tiny tube of bubbles into the larger fruits! I’ll have to take some pictures πŸ™‚

  9. Love this idea! I’m happy I wont be using these for anything other than a conversation piece in the office- seems super easy (and it could definitely be operator error) but I’m having a heck of a time getting all those tabs to stay.. and of course once its enclosed, where do I put my fingers to press the pieces together while the glue dries?!

  10. Hi, I downloaded the templates for all these cute fruits last year for my preschooler. We had a blast. Thank you, Mr Printables, your website is the go-to for our arts and crafts cravings.

    Just yesterday I strolled along our local shopping centre (in Hornsby, Australia) and I saw some big versions of similar looking paper-made fruits in the window display of a stationery store ( http://www.kikki-k.com/blog/download-our-3d-fruit-template/ ). I’m just wondering if they are related in any way to your design?

    • Hi Herna
      Thanks for pointing this out to us. (Sorry I’ve only just got around to responding to your comment) We have noticed other kind commenters mentioning this on their site. I have examined their template and it is identical to our patterns that we had drawn from scratch. We believe they have taken (stolen) our work and slightly changed the graphic. Thank you for your concern!
      Best,
      Olive

      • Hi Olive.
        Thank you for your reply.
        I love stationaries, that’s why I paid for kikki.K’s exorbitant price. But their lack of integrity and ethic is appalling. I had ceased my membership with them and would never purchase any item from them again.

  11. I’ve got a great tip for sticking the last pieces:
    Use liquid glue so that it makes the last piece easier to stick πŸ™‚

  12. Hello, I’ve just stumbled across your website and your Play Fruit which I absolutely love. I’ve downloaded the templates that are available – watermelon, kiwi fruit, apple & pear – to do with my daughters but would love the other templates if they are still available? Pineapple, strawberry etc

  13. where can I find the template for the Lemon? i’m going to do a BEYHIVE party in the theme of beyonce’s last album “LEMONADE” so i wanna make a lot of lemons! can anyone help me as quick as possible? also other ideas are welcome! πŸ˜‰

  14. Pleaseee i need other templates pineapple,banana,strawberry and lemon for my son’s birthday party. Can you help me? <3

  15. where you found the templates lemon pineapple. I found only the templates of the watermelon and kiwi ,Apple and pear

  16. how do i get the pineapple, strawberry and banana templates? there is not download link for those…

  17. This are awesome! How can I find the other fruits templates? Please! I want to use them on my kids sunday bible school.

  18. Hi, Mr. Printables folks! I don’t know if the raspberry, banana and pineapple were originally a second page of the file that has the lemon, strawberry and blueberry or if they were a separate file, but many of us are completely unable to find them. We would LOVE to have those patterns available. By some older comments, it seems those patterns were available once upon a time… might you put them back, please?
    Thank you!

  19. Hi Everyone!
    The missing banana & pineapple (together with a few small berries) are now available again from the above links! We’ve been going through the entire site and it took us some time to rework these.
    Hope you enjoy them! And don’t forget to share your creation with #mrprintables on Instagram, or feel free to post here, we’d love to see!

    Thank you : )

  20. I don’t see the pineapple or the banana but would love to make those for my daughter’s fruit party on Sat.
