LEVEL: EASY (does require some scissor use)
In celebration of the first day of spring, my friends Flora, Kiera and I made FLORAL FRUIT KABOBS. These are perfect for picnics and kid parties and are easy to make. Just follow the steps below.
It’s easier if you have the pointy side of the kabob or skewer facing upwards. Just be careful not to poke yourself.
Adding a slice of carrot or some other hard fruit like coconut is important because this makes a base for your fruit kabob and keeps the other softer fruit slices from sliding down and off (oops!) your kabob!
If you are going to have these kabobs out in the sun at a picnic then you might not want to use banana because the banana will turn brown. We like using firm melon & strawberries, especially because they make these look more like flowers.
Try to cover the end of the skewer with the bottom of the strawberry without pointing the stick all the way through. That way the top looks much more like the middle of a flower.
