Today my Auntie and I made some cool things using fruit! We made cars and turtles.
For the cars, we used 2 of my favorite fruit - berries and bananas! We peeled a banana. Then with a knife, we sliced up a couple of strawberries for the tires. (make sure a grown up uses the knife. They’re sharp!) We used toothpicks to stick the tires on the bananas. You can cut the tops off more strawberries and use them as people in your car like we did!
The turtles are made out of kiwis and grapes. Have a grown up cut a kiwi in half. Using toothpicks, stick the grapes on the kiwi for a head and feet. (You could even make a tail, but I didn’t want to) Auntie didn’t stick the toothpicks in all the way on his head so it looked like he had little eyes.
We ate these for breakfast today. They were so good! I have never tried kiwi before. It’s good! It’s green on the inside with tiny little seeds that you can eat. It’s brown and kinda furry on the outside. Don’t eat that part! You can peel them, slice them, or scoop the insides out with a spoon like we did.
It’s good to try new foods. I think everyone should try new foods whenever you can. It was so good to help make my own healthy breakfast. I like to help in the kitchen. You can do it, too!
