Winters bring with it some of the most delicious fruits with it. Also, there are plenty of vacations for the kids. So, why not have an advantage of this situation and let our kids have some fun with a wide variety of fruits in this season.
Today, I am going to share some fruit dressing ideas that we did at home during these vacations and had a lot of fun doing them. It was an activity where we learnt about fruits, made funny shapes with them and above all had great fun eating them together.
Who says kids run away from fruits? If we let them play with it, create funny faces and let them find the fruits served in the most adorable way.
Here are a few ideas for the fruit salad decoration ideas which will have your kids gobble them in no time.
I involved my kids while doing this activity and they had great fun. If your kids are small, you can cut the fruits and let them form some funny shapes with the pieces in a plate. If you have slightly older kids, give them plastic knives and show them how to cut the fruits by giving them soft fruits like a ripe banana.
Bananas and kiwis served in the shape of a tree. Cut and peel the kiwis and banana and ask the child to make a tree like this. Kids will definitely come up with their own ideas to add on.
How about little kids made of kiwis, strawberries and bananas?
My kids had a hearty laugh to see these in their plates and I had a big smile on my face when I saw them finishing it up in no time.
What’s more? Kids can also make these cuties with fruit pieces and come up with their own innovative ideas. Like my daughter added kiwi pieces to make the green grass in this picture.
Let the little ones enjoy their fruits served like a flower. My little one added the strawberry in the centre of the flower to make it more colourful. I am sure your kids will come up with more ideas too.
How about a spaceship? Let the imagination of your kids touch the skies with this wonderful spaceship made of fruits. Let them imagine themselves to be astronauts discovering new planets and going into space in their fruit rockets.
I am sure kids will have super fun to gobble this cute kiwi monster with their forks and knives. Challenge them to be the knights and finish this monster in no time. They will have great fun with their pretend play and you will have great satisfaction to see them eating it with delight.
A flower with petals made from strawberries. Show them different ways to decorate their fruit salad and spark their imagination.
The reason I took only three fruits in this activity was very simple. I used limited ingredients to create different shapes and designs. It allows kids to think out of the box. With limited things they can create unlimited objects.
This activity not only helped kids enjoy eating and finishing fruits leading to healthy snacking but also they had great fun in the kitchen. They had a new activity to do. They made their own salads and ate them.
We had great fun making these funny shapes with fruits. Do share with me your ideas too.
