1. Take your small pieces of pineapple and arrange them into a school bus shape on a plate.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just have a general outline.

2. Using your kitchen knife, slice the top off of both of your black plums.  Place the black plums on your pineapple school bus for the wheels.

3. Next we’re going to add some Kix cereal details.  I added 2 pieces of Kix cereal to the wheels, 1 for the headlight, and made a line of Kix cereal at the bottom of the plate for the road.
