We love these things, because we love fruit! Except for Thomas - he doesn't like fruit. In my book, if you don't like fruit you are weird:) Just kidding! But how could someone NOT like fruit. There are so many different kinds to choose from and in so many beautiful colors.

As for our family, one of our favorites is watermelon. Thanks to my father-in-law, we get them all summer long for free. He has the best home-grown watermelons around. We can't wait for a visit from Pappy to get a few watermelons. The kids and I will eat watermelon non-stop in the summer time.

We also have many other fruits we love to enjoy. We only chose our favorites for this particular bunch of fruit skewers. My kids love to put these together. Of course, some end up with missing pieces because they eat them along the way. But that's part of it, right?

The easy thing about putting together fruit skewers is that there is no wrong way to make them! The how to is very simple! Get fruit skewers and your favorite fruit and start working!
We used watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries and pineapple!






These fruit skewers are pressed into the top of a watermelon. The watermelon was cut in half and hollowed out. Turn it over and place it on a plate or platter and place the skewers however you would like. Now you have a nice display of fruit. These can be used for all different occasions! Parties, showers, graduations or just to eat for fun!

YUM! They were so good! We ate them with our lunch. Bonnie then used the skewer as a drum on the flower vase! Yummy! :)
