Fruit Shapes

ages 3-6


Watermelon or peeled apple, knife (to be used by the parent supervising this activity), small metal cookie cutters

Activity Detail

Cut a watermelon or peeled apple into thin slices. Give your child small metal cookie cutters and let him cut out shapes from the slices. As a reward for his hard work, he gets to eat the shapes! A good alternative to the fruit would be to use thin slices of bread or cheese.

What a fun way to combine a nutritious snack with creativity and some motor skills work to boot!

A great way to get your child to eat fruit. Also, one can cut fun shapes out of their peanut butter and jelly or turkey sandwich.

This activity has potential but I'm not really sure how to cut an apple thin enough so my child could use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes from it. A watermelon would be easier, but that still seems awkward. Maybe it would help to include some concrete ways to cut fruit so that a cookie cutter could be used with it. Using bread or cheese would be easier to be sure, but I imagine part of the purpose of this activity is to make eating fruit "fun."
