In addition to the precut but fresh pineapple we also chose red grapes, strawberries, blueberries, bananas and watermelon for the kabobs. When we got home we prepared all the fruit and placed it in small containers. Then I realized I was out of wooden skewers. . . ugh. A quick trip to Wal-mart solved that problem and I also stumbled upon some small screw top plastic containers which would be perfect for leftover smoothie (recipe to come).
The older kids were greeted by a "Fruit Kabob" station when they got home from schools. They picked the fruit they wanted, slid it onto a skewer, and raced back outside to enjoy their snack. My oldest son did a pattern of strawberries and watermelon, my other son jammed on pieces of everything, my little one counted the fruit as he poked it onto the skewer, and my daughter asked if we could have fruit kabobs for breakfast too. I left the fruit bar set up for about an hour for the inevitable after school grazing and then packed all the leftovers away for lunch boxes and more snacks. Yummy and fun!
- Wash and prepare all fruit, cut into bite-sized pieces as needed.
- Place fruit in individual containers.
- Carefully poke skewers through the fruit of your choice until skewer is filled.
