Rocket-ship Fruit Skewers

A summery fun way to get kids to eat (and play with) their fruit!

What You Need: Fruit any kind: Strawberries, Bananas, Watermelons, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Peaches, Plums, Cherries, Pineapples.... really any kind; Skewers or Chopsticks if you have small children

What To Do: layout the fruit and let the children build a rocket ship, using a Banana or Strawberry tip as the nose of the rocket. 

Then Eat!


  1. I love those. My friend and I threw a party for my son and her daughter 2 years ago and made those. We also had some chocolate syrup and caramel to drizzle over them. The kids loved them. We called them fruit kabobs, lol. I like your name for them better.

  2. I love that - we maybe doing that at LJ's birthday party let the kids make them and drizzle them and eat them!

  3. Really cute idea! I am your newest follower (from the BBC preschool post you had:) )

  4. Thank you, Beth! Welcome and I hope you enjoy!
