F spelled in fruit for food fun

F is for Fruit Structures!

Or fruit molecules... This one is easy. Usually kids make fruit kebabs, but what if we take it one step further and have them build structures with fruit?! All you need is some fruit pieces, toothpicks, and a little bit of an imagination. What will your child build?

Fruit Structures

TOOLS

  • Clean Surface
  • Toothpicks
  • Melon Baller (if you want round pieces)

INGREDIENTS

  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Melon Balls 
  • Any other fruit you have on hand!

STEPS

Wash hands

20+ seconds. 

We are going to be playing with food after all. 

 

Get your ingredients out.

Fill different containers with fruits. 

I like to make them all round, so this is the time to use a melon baller to create some fruit balls!

Build and Enjoy your creations!

The sky is the limit. 

Some structures, some H20, some CH4…

Anyone else want to geek out with us?!
