Fruit Kabobs are a great picnic table activity and snack! Thin pretzels are a great way to make kabobs! Younger children can eat the fruit and the pretzel! For thicker fruit, an adult can make an initial hole into the fruit so it will be easier for the child to stick the pretzel stick into it. Older children can use toothpicks. Experiment with other favorite fruit dips with the kabobs. Use any assortment of fresh fruits! This is a great way to get children to try new and different fruits.
Ingredients for Fruit Kabobs:
Fruit Cubes/Pieces, such as:
Thin Pretzel Sticks

Thread fruit cubes/pieces onto the pretzel stick. Make as many as you want – and in all sorts of different fruit combinations!
