Build Your Own Fruit Kabobs – Rainbow Sticks

Here is an idea to get your kids involved in prepping for dinner, lunch, or simply a snack. Added bonus – they will be excited to eat something healthy!
1. Prep the sliced fruit and place small bowls of fruit your kids like (strawberries, grapes, cantaloupe chunks, watermelon chunks, apple chunks, baby orange slices, blueberries, etc…)
2. Give each child a few skewers (coffee stirrers work well and are safe for the younger kids) and a clean plate to work on.
3. Have them build the kabobs

I like to talk about the how it is healthy to eat the colors of the rainbow. If you want to get really wacky, you can do taste tests with different fruits eaten together and come up with new names for them. We like strawnanas in our house.


  1. These are also a perfect remedy for the 'luchbox blahs'! What kid wants a plain old apple when you can pack the rainbow on a stick?!

  2. Love it! So pretty, coloful, and delicious.

  3. Now that is a great idea I can actually use at home. So pretty and tasty too!
