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!

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.
