Valentine's Day Fruit Kabob Skewers
This Valentine’s Day fruit idea is an easy twist on a classic.
Fruit kabob skewers are a great option for parties, school snacks and treats, or a fun activity to do with your kids. These fruit skewer ideas are a way to celebrate Valentine’s day.
Valentine’s day fruit may not be the first treat to come to mind, but on a day filled with chocolate and candy, you’ll be thankful for some valentine’s day fruit thrown in the mix too!
All you need is a heart-shaped cookie cutter, a knife, skewers (or toothpicks if that’s all you have), and fruit of your choosing!
How to Make Valentine’s Day Fruit Kabob Skewers:
First, Wash your choice of Valentine’s day fruit, and gather your supplies
Second, Use cookie cutter to get heart shaped fruit in things like melons and pineapples
Next, Use a knife if you don’t have a cookie cutter, or for fruit like strawberries that aren’t conducive for using a cookie cutter. I cut my strawberries in half, resulting in a triangular shape. I used a knife to shape the top to look more like a heart
Then, grab your toothpicks or wooden skewers and start mixing and matching to make heart shaped fruit kabob skewers.
For the cupid’s arrow fruit kabob skewers, I just cut the strawberry in half, added blueberries and orange segments to the remainder to make it look like an arrow. The opportunities are endless!!
Kids in the Kitchen
Research shows getting kids involved in the kitchen at home increases their preference to fruit and vegetables, in addition to their willingness to try new foods
Kids helping in the kitchen at home was associated with higher self-efficacy for making healthier food choices
Other benefits to kids helping in the kitchen are opportunities to practice other skills like math (counting, measuring), reading (recipe directions, food labels), and the importance of safety in the kitchen.
