Fruit Kebabs

Hello guys, It can be quite a challenge getting the kids to eat more fruits. So we decided to make the fruits look more attractive and also get them all involved in the kebab making process.
All you need are satay sticks and what else...but fruits? It's that simple! Anyone can make them.
This activity turned out to be a real hit and the kids really loved their fruit kebabs and ate up all the fruits!

Materials Needed:

1. Satay sticks
2. Cut-out fruits (e.g. strawberries, bananas, kiwis, oranges, apples, mangoes, grapes, starfruits etc)

1. Cut out the fruits into small pieces.
2. Wash the satay sticks and then let the children assemble the fruits one by one onto the sticks. 
Precaution: Pls check that there are no splinters sticking out of the satay sticks before letting the children handle them. Also ensure that the children do not poke their eyes with the sharp end of the satay sticks. Adult supervision is essential when young children are handling satay sticks.

And ta-da... you have made your very own Fruit Kebab!
How easy was that?
Best thing is the fruits look so attractive and appetizing on the satay sticks.
And my kids really enjoyed eating the fruit kebabs as they looked so pretty and colourful.

These are the kebabs made by the kids.


I think these kebabs can also make very nice centerpieces for birthday parties, don't you think?
Hope this activity gives you some ideas for your next recipe with your kids.
