Fresh fruit

Skewers

Sharp knife

Instructions

Before you get started you can get your kids to design their rocket ships. You’ll be doing most of the cutting, so this is a great way to get them involved. They’ll need to have a point at one end, and a base at the other end. Get them to use colored pencils that match the fruits you have available.

Start by cutting and peeling the fruit. You’ll need one piece of fruit in a triangular shape for the tip, and another in a trapezoid with the bottom wider than the top. The other bits of fruit can be rectangular or square.

Try not to make your fruit too thick or too thin. You don’t want it too heavy for the skewer, but you don’t want it to break off either.
