Fruit and Veggie Portraits
Looking for a healthier snack? Put out bowls of fruits and vegetables in different shapes – round berries, thin-sliced cucumbers, carrot sticks, halved strawberries, whole cherry tomatoes, or anything else you can think of – and see what your kids come up with. Will they make a rainbow of round, brightly colored fruits? Do those julienned carrots suddenly look like Grandpa’s beard? For younger kids, draw an outline of a picture on a paper plate and let them use the foods to fill in the colors.
