Fruit Fest!

For our family one of the best parts of the summer is the fresh delicious delicious fresh fruit found at the farmers market.  My kids simply can’t get enough of it, they regularly consume half of a watermelon or musk melon in one sitting or even a pound of blueberries.  I’m pretty such my youngest would be a fruitarian is I allowed it. We decided last week to have a special fruit kabob lunch.

All you need for your fruit kabobs is an array of cut up fruit and a few skewers.

Here’s Elliot working on his fine motor skills with a strawberry.

Here’s Elliot eating his hard work, no delayed gratification for him!


Stella and her patterned fruit kabob.  Cantaloupe, blueberry, watermelon, strawberry, repeat! What a great hands on way to have the math lesson of the day!

Lunch time!  Enjoy!
