- Baby Wipes

- First things first – grab your small paper plate and craft scissors.
- Cut the paper plate, straight down the center, into TWO equal halves.
- Reserve one half for today’s pineapple craft and save the other for a rainy day.
- Now grab your yellow craft paint and foam paint brush.
- Squirt a small amount of craft paint in the middle of the paper plate half.
- Take the paint brush and move it around, until the paper plate half is completely yellow.
- When done with the painting step, set aside the paper plate to allow it to dry completely.
- Now grab your black cardstock paper and the scissors again.
- Fold the black cardstock paper in half and open it back up again.
- Use scissors to the cut the paper piece, straight up the center, to create two equal pieces.
- Reserve one black paper piece for today’s pineapple craft and save the other for another day.
- Now grab your various shades of brown and green sidewalk chalk.
- Make several outward/curved lines, all over the black cardstock piece, to recreate the pointy, top part of the pineapple. Add as many lines and colors as you like on the paper.
- When done with the chalk step, set aside the paper piece and clean off your hands with a few baby wipes & a quick trip to the sink.
- When ready, now grab your yellow painted paper plate piece and the black Sharpie marker.
- Go ahead and make small “x’s” all over the paper plate half to give the “pineapple” some dimension.
- Once you are done with that step, go ahead and grab the chalk covered paper piece from earlier and the stapler.
- Go ahead and staple the painted paper plate piece to the bottle of your chalk covered paper. The chalk design should look like the top of the pineapple, while the paper plate is the bottom portion.
- Add any other embellishments you see fit.
- Then display your custom one-of-a-kind paper & chalk art pineapple piece proudly for all to see!
