Christmas Kid Party Kababs!
I have twins in first grade and was asked to contribute specific items for the holiday party... 24 paper plates? No problem! 24 fruit kabobs.....sigh. There are tons of super cute ideas on the net that are easier...but somehow I got snowmen on the brain and they just had to be. I am NOT a food photographer, and I could have tried a little harder to make the picture cuter, but I still have a dozen of these bad boys to go, and they are supposed to be at school TOMORROW, not Wednesday like I thought.
I didn't have a melon baller, so I used a tablespoon for the big sections and a teaspoon for the head... 1/2 a grape for the hat brim, and another grape for the top of the hat. Raisin bits made up the eyes and buttons. (cut in long halves, pre-poke the hole beforehand with an extra skewer.) And little slivers of carrots for the nose! I had all kinds of ideas with apples, apple bits, watermelon mittens even... but these were what I ended up with tonight. They did keep getting cuter and cuter...I'm sure some super pinter-person will do them up even nicer and get great pics.
