How to Make Rainbow Fruit Snacks

This rainbow fruit snack is good for your body and your brain. When kids copy a pattern, like the colors in a rainbow, they get smarter at math. When kids put fruit on skewers, they strengthen the finger muscles they’ll need for writing.

To make these snacks, you’ll need:

• Wooden skewers
• A couple of plates
• A large plate or platter to build the rainbow on
• Fruit

You can choose whichever fruits you like. Pick one for each color in your rainbow.

Examples: strawberries for red, orange slices for orange, pineapple chunks for yellow, green grapes for green, blueberries for blue and purple grapes for purple.

Safely poke the skewer through the fruit by laying the fruit on your platter, and poke the skewer down. Then, push the fruit up.

Grapes and other large chunks of fruit can be choking hazards for young children. It’s best to cut small fruit pieces and cut the grapes in half before eating.
