My family is pretty obsessed with pineapples! We’ve been buying at least 2 each week the past couple of months and my kids just can’t get enough.
Not only do we enjoy eating them, but we also love anything with a pineapple motif. They are just so cute!
I have several pineapple crafts for adults up on the site (like this pineapple centerpiece) so I thought it would be fun to share a similar pineapple craft for kids.
This would make a fun backyard luau craft or kids could make them as napkin ring holders for a summer party!
And because summer is just around the corner, I threw in a bonus watermelon craft idea! It’s all on the same template.
Okay, let’s learn how to make an easy paper pineapple craft for kids!
Toilet Paper Roll Pineapple Craft for Kids
How to Make Paper Pineapples
Take an empty toilet paper roll and cut it in half using scissors.
Select your craft papers for the pineapple. Any shade of yellow or green works best, but you can also change it up with other colors.
Use the templates to trace and cut out the pieces from colorful craft papers. Use marker pens to draw outlines and details. It’s helpful to use a ruler when drawing the lines of the pineapple body.
First wrap the yellow craft paper around the toilet paper roll and secure it with the glue stick.
Finish it off by gluing the leaves on top of the toilet paper roll.
And there you have it! A super easy pineapple paper craft to make with your family or classroom!
To make the paper watermelon craft, you’ll follow basically the same instructions, just using the watermelon pieces instead of the pineapple pieces.
