healthy Valentine's snack idea: mini red fruit skewers

To balance out the (really good homemade, but still really sugary) cookies I was sending into school, I picked up a few different kind of red fruit and some long(er) toothpicks.

I don't need to tell you that this mini fruit kabob making effort could have gone a lot more quickly had I just done it after the kiddos were bathed and in bed...

but it was worth having the kids help at the end of the day. They excitedly came up with a pattern and carefully poked each one together, announcing that "[their classmates] were going to love this Valentine's snack". He's probably right. Even plain fruit is exciting when served on a stick!


  1. This is a great idea. So lovely looking, healthy and delicious. What a combination!

  2. What a fun idea. I want to send a fruit or other healthy snack to school for the kids Valentines party. Might try this!

  3. LOVE IT!
    Fancy is super fun :)

    LOVE what you're doing here!!
