Last week's no-oven-cook with the kids pickles were so popular, that I wanted to share another no-oven-cook with the kids project for this week: Fruit Kabobs. Yes, I know fruit kabobs are simple, but sometimes the easiest recipes are the most fun.
There are three reasons why these are so popular with the little ones. Side note: adults at our house over the weekend had just as much fun making their own as the kids did.
1. Everything tastes better on a stick
2. Kids can be in charge and design their skewer, as they want
3. Encourages eating mass quantities of fruit
Wash and cut cantaloupe, honeydew melon, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, watermelon and pineapple and place in separate bowls. Hand kids a stick and remind them to be careful of the sharp point and let them go crazy.
The possibilities are endless, my son even created one with the fruit in alphabetical order.
Oddly enough even though this "recipe" only involves cut up fruit and skewers, it provides much enthusiasm, entertainment and healthy eating for our offspring.
Also try cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella balls and basil on a stick for the delicious caprese skewer.
