Now that the weather is heating up it is perfect timing to make some fun fruit treats with the kids. I find that if it is remotely linked to any sort of pretend play it is sure fire winner. Magic also happens in the freezer with ‘fruit’ appearing to now be a ‘popsicle’.
Here are some fun fruit ideas to whip up with your kids
These fairy wands are super simple.
+ grab a few skewers
+ place grapes on first or berries if they are in season
+ with a star shaped cookie cutter make some watermelon stars
+ place in the freezer for a couple of hours before serving
For the boys we have some pirate fun
+ cut an orange into half and then into ‘smiley’ faces
+ chop up some bananas into round shapes and in half diagonally then into sections for the body. You could also use a grape for the body
+ again with toothpicks or skewers slide the banana pieces on and stick in the middle of the orange ‘boat’
+ for extra squeals of happiness place in the freezer for a few hours
See, super simple and it keeps everyone happy!
