In honor of the change in season, I thought I would share this easy and fun way to cheer up spring.
Like it actually really needs any cheering, with all the flowers and trees in bloom right now. But I like to eat and I know you do too, and I couldn't resist sharing how to make these.
First, assemble your fruit and supplies.
Fun, festive toothpicks.
And 2 smallish, flower-shaped cookie cutters.
Slice rather thin slices from the fruit with a sharp knife.
Take your cutters and get to work.
The cantaloupe was the smaller flower....
....and I used the larger flower cutter for the pineapple.
The pineapple was a bit hard to push down through; so we used our big knife to give our hands a rest.
Assemble all the pieces, put a grape on top, and skewer to hold all with a toothpick.
The perfect job for little hands.
And these pretty flower fruits were a nice addition to the tea we had at our Spring Fine Arts day at co-op this week.
