What a simple clever fruit display idea – to make a heart using rainbow coloured fruits. The kids will gobble this up!

You could use:

  • Red: berries such as strawberries and raspberries
  • Orange: cantaloupe or tangerine slices
  • Yellow: mango cubes or banana slices
  • Green: kiwi or green apple chunks
  • Blue: blueberries
  • Indigo: red grapes (cut in half)

#3. Cucumber or Carrot Hearts

How cute are these heart-shaped cucumber slices from the Workman Family Blog? Just cut cucumber slices normally and then cut out to shape them into hearts.

#5. Simple Strawberry Sticks

Such a simple idea but also very cute. These strawberry sticks from Catch My Party just involve cutting your strawberries into heart slices and popping them on a skewer.

You could thread other fruit in between to make them even more colourful.
