Child Activity – Fruit Salad


A new activity with something simple, fruit salad.


This was a great start as the children virtually made the whole thing themselves, peeling clementines…


cutting apple and dipping it in orange juice to stop it going brown….


…helping to cut grapes….

…and slice the pineapple…


..and placing everything in the bowl ready for lunch.


So here it is, the children’s finished fruit salad. It’s not likely to win any prizes but participating in it’s preparation helped the children to learn about:

Healthy practices – washing hands / not eating the food as we prepared it

Staying safe – using the knives in a safe way

Healthy eating / choices – learning the names of the fruits we used and learning about what they liked and disliked.

Enjoying the fruit salad they made for dessert:-)
