I told you that this was super simple to put together and I wasn’t kidding. Your rainbow fruit tray will be ready to go in four simple steps, my friend!
Step One: Wash and cut your fruit.
Step Two: Arrange the fruit on the tray following good ol’ ROYGBIV in the shape of a rainbow. Translation in case you didn’t catch that childhood art class reference: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
Step Three: Pour round crackers into a small bowl. Place the bowl on one side of the rainbow.
Step Four: Cut cheddar cheese into small cubes. Put the cheese cubes into another small bowl and place the second bowl on the other side of the rainbow.
Invite your kiddos to the table for a delicious snack! You could even pair the snack with a favorite book. Because kids + snacks = amazing time to read aloud books.
