Make your own fruit kabobs. These are tasty and healthy treats that the kids can help to make.

What You Need:
What You Do:

Section the oranges, wedge the apples, cube the cantaloupe and cut the honeydew melon into triangles.

On 5" x 7" index cards draw colored shapes on a stick to represent the different fruit shapes and colors.

Each card should be different. For example; one card may have an orange square, a green circle, a red crescent, a green triangle, and an orange crescent. This would represent a piece of cantaloupe, a grape, an apple wedge, a honeydew melon piece, and an orange section.

The idea is for each child to place the fruit on the stick in the order, color, and shape indicated on their index card.

This is lots of fun in addition to a great learning experience for toddlers. They really love eating their healthy accomplishments afterward.
