From time to time my wife will get involved with one of the kid’s school parties. When she’s asked to bring a snack, she can’t bring herself to bring sugary treats such as brownies the way the other mothers do. Instead, she needs to be a little creative using fruits or other healthy snacks. It turns out the kids love them even more than the sugary treats. Every time all the fruit is gone in a flash.
She started this practice with a fruit peacock back in 2006 for a party for our daughter’s kindergarten class. She made a fruit turkey for a class Thanksgiving party one year. This year she made a Christmas Tree for our son’s first grade class.
