Use Any Fruit For Your Skewers
Whether you arrange your fruits in a rainbow-like color or just simply line them up on the skewer, this dish will be a perfect treat. And while the rainbow-color ones definitely look more Instagrammable, real life kids do enjoy even the simplest form of this dish.
To make the fruit kebabs you see in the pictures, I’ve used apples, bananas and two types of grapes. It cannot be more simple than that! You can come by these mostly any time of the year, and every kid loves them! See below a list of other fruit ideas to use in your fruit kebabs.
Bring In The Kids!
Arranging fruits on the skewer is an activity that you can partly or entirely leave up to the kids, depending on their age. Youngsters love helping out, so a simple task like this could be a lot of fun for them!
Chop up the fruits, and kids from the age of 3 or 4 could help you arranging them on the skewers. Children old enough to handle a knife may even help you with preparing the fruit.
What Other Fruits Can You Use
This is really up to your imagination or what you can get hold of this part of the year. You can use any fruit that is sweet, firm enough to go on a skewer and can be cut into roughly 1/2 – 1 inch pieces.
