We've been saving flat styrofoam trays from the grocery store, the ones which come with packaged meat or vegetables. Now that it's spring vacation, our plan is to make block prints with them - they are very easy to "carve" with a blunt pencil or wooden skewer. You can dip them in poster paint and then make prints. (This apple is an idea sketch as I think about ways to play with line and shape.)

Your apple design is strong. I like to stamp with foam trays too. They're good for all sorts of things - keeping the current colored pencils from rolling away, and I melt them with spray fixative, then paint them in abstract patterns to look like tiles.
