Simple Fruit Wand Ingredients
This is seriously the easiest fruit wand you'll ever make! You'll need:
- Fresh Pineapple
- Star Cookie Cutter – 3.5″ or 4″
- 6″ Bamboo Skewers
- Striped Paper Straws – mine are purple for a Room on the Broom Wand
- Cutting Board
- Sharp Knife
Don't worry about the pineapple skin – this will be trimmed as you cut your stars. But you may want to salvage the leftovers for a smoothie or homemade pineapple popsicle. You want your slices roughly 3/4-1″ thick. They need to be thick enough for the skewer to hold firm and not break the fruit.
Cut your Stars
Now that the slices are cut, use the Cookie Cutter to cut a pineapple star from the center of each slice. If the cutter doesn't go all the way through or cut as clean as you'd like, use a knife to trim the edges around the star.
*Note: You will retain the pineapple core in the star. Just let your little people know to bite all around the center circle. Pineapple cores are usually too tough and woody for eating.
Prepare Your Skewers
If you purchase the 6″ skewers you will not need to take this step. If you head to the drawer with the BBQ stuff and grab the 12″ skewers….you definitely need to trim them about the length of the straw!
Insert Skewers for Fruit Wand
After your stars are cut and skewers ready, poke one skewer into each star until it's firmly embedded into the core.
*Note: Hold the bottom edge with your fingers to give support and prevent cracking when threading the skewer.
Add Straws and Enjoy Your Fruit Wand!
After your skewer is in place simply slide the straw up and press firmly into the pineapple. The straws should stay in place, mine did. But if you are concerned with young children dropping their pineapple fruit wand you can add a little glue inside of the straw before threading it.
Now try a spell with your fruit wand! See if you can create a fancy new broom, conjure potion, or cast a spell!
Room on the Broom Wand
