Most children love eating fruits, but adding a little twist to the fruits makes the experience even better for them!  For our theme on food, we decided to make some fruit kebabs with the kids. The term “kebab” is a Persian or Indian term that means on a stick or skewer. This is usually meant for their famous chicken kebabs and the like. In our case, we decided to use fruits!

What you will need:

  • At least 5 kinds of fruits
  • Barbecue sticks/skewers
  • Small plates
  • Condensed/Sweetened Milk
  • Crushed Chocolate Wafer Sticks (optional)
  • Large numbers (for the kids to follow step by step)


Make sure to cut the fruits in  a way that is still easy for the kids to get using the sticks

Pour the condensed milk in a small bowl

Crush the Chocolate Wafers to sprinkle on the fruit kebab later on

In addition, we decided to arrange the fruits in such a manner that the kids would follow it step by step. It helps later on as they learn more about sequencing events.


Let the kids take a stick/skewer and a small plate and start selecting the fruits they wish to eat.

Stack the fruits using the stick/skewer

Pour some sweet/condensed milk (It would be better to pour using a spoon rather than dipping the whole stick to prevent the fruits from falling off)

Sprinkle the crushed chocolate wafers

Eat up!

Make sure to have extra fruits for the kids and prepare for second and third servings!
