I totally stole this idea from my friend Carrie who had the most beautiful rainbow fruit kabobs at her daughters birthday party. They were GORGEOUS and so FUN!
I immediately imagined the Little Guy and I making them together. What a fun way to get your little one to have fun in the kitchen while learning about and taste-testing all sorts of different fruits!
The idea is simple. Use a fruit for every color of the rainbow to make a kabob. Here are some ideas…
Red = Watermelon, Strawberries, Cherries, Raspberries
Orange = Cantaloupe, Oranges, Mangos
Yellow = Pineapple, Yellow Watermelon
Green = Kiwis, Green Grapes, Honeydew
Blue/Purple = Blueberries, Grapes, Blackberries
Simply skewer the fruit in rainbow color order and have fun with it!
On our next trip to the grocery store I'm going to let the Little Guy pick out 1 fruit for every color. What a great way to get them involved in choosing healthy foods on their own!
And who says we can't do a veggie kabob? I'm thinking a grilled rainbow kabob of red pepper, butternut squash, small cut of corn on the cob, broccoli, and purple potato would look awesome! And geesh, you could even almost do a whole rainbow just out of peppers if you wanted!
I love having fun with good healthy food! I hope this inspires you too. 🙂
