As you teach this lesson, give kids an example with step-by-step instructions on how to do it, and then let them do more on their own and get creative.

It gives them the basics of the lesson so of course they know how to do it right if they choose to follow the instructions, but they can always have their own opinion.

Make pineapple fingerprint art

Young children may need a parent or adult to help them through this process, but they love it too. Above 5th grade, they make one and then want to paint it on their own.

If you’re teaching more than one child, I’d mostly stick to elementary ages for that.

It doesn’t require a lot of material and is an easy class overall, so if you’ve got a week where you know you’re going to choke on other things, put this lesson out there to lighten your load.

What you will need:

  • yellow, green, orange acrylic paints… Prefer cheap brands, they work very well.
  • construction paper or mixed paper.
  • pallets or paper plates
  • brushes of different sizes. Thin ones help with small details like adding an eye to something, but they also need wider ones.
  • paper towels and/or hand towels.
  • Disposable towel for easy cleaning.
  • a glass of water.

step by step instructions

If you can, make your own examples to show the children, one in yellow and one in mixed ink.

Colors for digital printing art

For the pineapple, I showed them where and how to paint their thumbs so they understand exactly what I mean in terms of the shape they need, and I just used a piece of paper to show them how to “stamp” them. finger print..

Ask them to flip the paper vertically so they have enough room to fit perfectly in the space around them.

Step 1-1

Explain at the beginning that they will have time to try other fingerprints or handprints, so use the same thumb for each stamp for this one to make it look like a real pineapple.

I gave my students the option to make a yellow base for the fruit and add an orange layer to each flake if they wanted to add dimension to the fruit or make it look like marble by using three colors of paint and stamping it. -horse.

Show them some examples. Here are photos you can show if you don’t have time to make yours beforehand.

Create a yellow pineapple

Take a flat brush that is at least ½” square, paint your thumb yellow from above to the knuckle and be sure to brush off any excess paint.

Color palette for digital print art

If it is thick ink, it will not show any print. It should be smooth and thin, but not transparent, otherwise it will not be enough.

Step 1-2
Step 2-1

If you see someone having a problem with the print failing to transfer to paper, they are painting too thin.

It gives very thick, squashed prints, but better than no print at all.

They need to start from the bottom of the pineapple so that as they dry more prints, they do not spoil what they have already placed. And I suggested they work depending on which hand they use.

Right-handers start from the left and work diagonally, etc.

Then, before you start rubbing, be sure to leave room for the green top of the fruit to be painted last.

Create the first row.

Step 2-2

It is recommended to leave some space between prints, but some prefer to place them right next to the next and the only difference is that it takes more prints and time.

The best way to balance the pineapple is to make an odd number of strokes per row and cut the top and bottom rows to give it a more rounded shape.

Step 3-1

Then move on to the next…

Step 3-2

… and continues…

Step 4-1

…until it’s over.

Step 4-2

Once they reach the top row, they can continue to paint the top green.

step 5

I used dark green on a medium brush to make mine, so on some I added a light highlight with a lighter green.

Or they can choose to add the next layer you paint half the size of yellow with orange or coral, just paint the bottom half of your thumb.

Step 6

make marble pineapple

Instead of painting your thumb yellow, this works better by dipping it in paint. To do this, you will need a large enough area on your plate.

Take a brush and dip it in whatever color you want to use. Dip them one at a time, placing the paint in the same spot, but without mixing it completely.

Step 1-3

I used yellow, coral and turquoise.

Steps 1-4

You want some areas of paint to blend naturally and they will blend as you work, but don’t mix the paint.

Let it flow naturally.

Then dip your thumb in the paint and apply it to the paper in the same way as the yellow one.

Step 2-3

These will have a little more edge on each block since you’re not removing the excess. They always come out so cute.

Step 3-3

You will need to change the ink from time to time, if you fill the ink too deep, the print will not come out, so make a few at a time and add more ink.

Step 4-3

For the green part, I dipped the brush into the mixture and painted as I went over the brush. So there are some bluish-green streaks as well as a green that is the blended color.

Step 7

Let them choose what they want to do for the rest of the lesson.

When teaching this class, give the kids an example of something, with step-by-step instructions on how to do it, and then let them do some more on their own and get creative.
It gives them the basics of the lesson so they know how to do it right, if they choose to follow the instructions, of course, but they can always come up with their own ideas.
Young children may need a parent or adult to help them with the process, but they love it too. Above about 5th grade they would make one and then want to paint on their own.
If you are teaching multiple children, I would mostly stick to the elementary ages for this.
It doesn’t take a lot of supplies and overall it’s an easy lesson, so if you have a week where you know you’ll be strained with other things, put this lesson there to lighten your load.
Pineapple fingerprint art for kids
What you will need:
yellow, green, orange acrylic paints… Opt for the cheap brands, they work very well.
construction paper or mixed paper.
paper pallets or plates
brushes of different sizes. Thin ones help with small details like adding eyes to something, but they also need wider ones.
paper towels and/or hand towels.
disposable tablecloth for easy cleaning.
water cups.
Step by step instructions
If you can, make your own examples to show the children, one in yellow and one in mixed paints.
For the pineapple, I showed them with my own hand where and how to paint the thumb so they knew exactly what I meant in terms of the shape they needed, and just used a bit of paper to show how to “stamp” the thumbprint down.
Ask them to turn their paper upright so they have enough room for it to fit nicely into the space around it.
Explain at the beginning that they will have time to try other fingerprints or handprints, so for this one just use the same thumb for each stamp, it makes it look like a real pineapple.
I gave my students the choice of making a yellow base for the fruit and then adding an orange layer to each stamp if they wanted, which helps give the fruit some dimension, or making it look marbled using three colors of paint and stamping them.
Show them some examples. If you don’t have time to make your own in advance, you have the photos here, you can show them.
Create a yellow pineapple
Take a flat brush that is at least ½” square in shape, paint the thumb from the top towards the knuckle yellow, and be sure to brush off any excess paint.
If it is thick paint, it will not show any impression. It should be smooth and thin, but not transparent, otherwise it will not be enough.
If you see someone having trouble with the print not transferring to the paper, they are painting it too thin.
Too thick gives crushed prints, but it’s better than no prints.
They need to start at the bottom of the pineapple so that as they dab more prints they don’t mess up the ones they have already put down. And I suggested that they work across, depending on which hand they’re using.
Right-handers would start on the left and work across, etc.
Then make sure before they start dabbing that they leave room for the green top on the fruit, which they will paint last.
Create the first row.
It is suggested to leave some space between prints, but some prefer to place them right next to the next one, and the only difference is that it takes more prints and time.
The best way to make the pineapple balanced is to make an odd number of dabs on each row and cut the top and bottom rows down so it has a more rounded shape.
Then move on to the next…
… and carry on…
…until it’s done.
When they get to the top row, they can continue painting the top green.
I used a dark green in a medium size brush to make mine, then added a light highlight on a few of them with a lighter green.
Or they may choose to add the next layer in orange or coral, which you paint in half the size of yellow, just painting the bottom half of the thumb.
Make a marbled pineapple
Instead of painting the thumb like with yellow, this one works best by dipping it in paint. You will need a large enough space to do this on the plate.
Take a brush and dip it in each color you want to use. Dip it one at a time, placing the paint in the same spot, but not mixing it completely.
I used yellow, coral and teal green.
You want certain areas of paint to blend naturally, and they will as you work, but don’t blend the paint.
Let it go naturally.
Next, dip your thumb in the paint, then dab it onto the paper the same way as the yellow.
These will have a bit more edge on each pad because you are not removing the excess. They always come out really cute.
You will need to replace the paint over time if you fill the paint very deep the print will not come out so do a few at a time then add more paint.
For the green part, I dipped the brush into the mixture and painted as it came over the brush. So it has a green that was the blended color, as well as some teal streaks.
For the rest of the lesson, let them choose what they want to do.
Any pineapple will be excellent.
Children have incredible ideas.
The imagination has no limits.
You can do all kinds of wonderful things with fingers and hands used as brushes.
Layering different colors or using normal brushes to add detail also looks great.
We love how this one turned out.
Create as many as you want.
It will look great with many different colors.
No need to stick to “naturals”.
Enjoy your creativity!
