Make an Animal out of Fruit

Looking for a fun rainy day activity to do with the kids? How about trying to Make an Animal out of Fruit or Vegetables? Here are some fun examples to try:


What you need:

You need several different types of fruits or vegetable, Cocktail sticks and lots of imagination! We created our mouse with one Avocado cut in half, one long Chive and a few blueberries.

Here is our fox made with a Pineapple, apple slices for feet, lemon slices for eyebrows and berries and grape for nose and eyes.

How many different animals can you make ?  Can you make an all fruit animal or an all vegetable animal?
