What you need:
Choose a variety of ripe, fresh fruit to make into different bite-size shapes, such as:
- Apple half-circles
- Banana rounds
- Cantaloupe or honeydew melon cubes
- Grape halves
- Kiwi circles
- Orange moon shapes
- Watermelon triangles
- Remove rinds and make fruit easy for children to cut.
- Arrange fruit on a small plate and sparkly with cinnamon.
- Children can spear fruit with a fork. (This is less dangerous than a wooden skewer or toothpick.)
