Don’t let the glitter scare you! It can be mess free by using glitter glue. If you’re feeling adventurous then why not use Elmer’s glue with gold glitter to really make your pineapple POP!
1. Cut the FREE Template
2. Trace and Cut Hands
Using green construction paper or card stock, trace your student’s hand and have them cut it out using a Pointed-tip Kids Scissors (5″).
3. Glue Hands to Pineapple Base
After your student has cut out his/her hands from the construction paper or card stock, have him/her glue their hands to the pineapple base. The hands will represent the leaves of a pineapple.
4. Add Detail with Adhesive
Using your favorite adhesive, add glue lines to your pineapple base. If you prefer something that is not as messy, have your students use glitter glue. This will save you a step when making this craft. If you’re feeling adventurous and glitter doesn’t bother you, keep reading!
5. Add GLITTER!
Add gold glitter to your pineapple. Set aside to dry before shaking off the excess glitter or adding a pineapple face.
