Since I work from home, I have the luxury of picking Kai up after school and bring him home. When I worked as a magazine editor in the past, Kai was stuck in extended day. Don’t get me wrong, he had fun, but I didn’t get to spend as much time with him. He made his first BFF there. But, when I picked him up he was soooooo hungry. I wasn’t able to pull food out of the refrigerator fast enough.
Today, I decided to make him a special surprise and really it only took me a few minutes.
For Christmas, I bought Kai a fruit cutter. You know, one of those As Seen On TV Pop Chef – it cuts shapes out of fruit – kind of like edible arrangements.
He was so excited when he opened it. I have such a healthy kid. haha. He gets excited about fruit! He rules.
Anyways, I thought I’d make him special treat today out of melon that I bought from the grocery store yesterday. We go through so much fruit in the house. I’m going to make a second trip to the store later this week to buy even more.
Melon (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew) or actually any fruit you want to use
Skewers, lollipop sticks or paper straws
Mini cookie cutters or As Seen On TV Pop Chef
Step 1: Cut shapes out of your fruit.
Step 2: Push your straw, lollipop stick or skewer into your fruit shapes.
