Grinch Fruit Kabobs (Easy Holiday Snack)

36 Comments

Grinch Fruit Kabobs Hip2Save

We’re crazy about Dr. Seuss at our house so here is a fun and easy snack to go along with the book and movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. We love that it is made up mostly of fruit and is easy take to go. This would be a fun treat for class parties, kid’s lunches, or any holiday celebration with kids.

Ingredients for one kabob:

* slice of banana
* strawberry
* mini marshmallow
* green grape
* extra long toothpicks ( got mine at the party supply store)

How to make grinch treats Hip2Save

Directions:

Place the four ingredients on the long toothpick as shown. First the grape, banana, strawberry, and last the marshmallow.

    How cute! I’m hosting my first Christmas eve party and there will be lots of toddlers who will love this! Thanks!

  2. Mary

    Those are adorable!

    Any ideas on what to put the banana in to keep from turning?

    • HK

      Toss it with some apple juice.

    • Heather C.

      Toss them in a little lemon juice. Works perfectly! 🙂

      I made little goblin bananas for my sons preschool. I soaked them in orange juice for about 10 minutes before putting them together. It seemed to work for at least 3or 4 hours. I didn’t want to do lemon juice because I didn’t think the toddler would appreciate lemon flavored bananas 🙂

  4. Denise

    Cute! Perfect for my picky eating nephew.

  5. carrie

    I want to make these for my son’s class. How could I prevent the bananas from browning?

    • RT

      Google is your friend, lol! Coat them with citrus juice of some kind. Orange, lemon, lime, pineapple etc.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I’ve heard of using a clean spray bottle with lemon juice. thanks

      • BETH

    You are so funnny. I was sitting here cracking up the entire time I was watching your video. On a more Serious note, your suggestions were super cute.

  19. Em

    Just a reminder- these are terrible choking hazards!

  20. Pat Becker

    OMG, I am sick in bed today with the flu. I just watched your video and next thing I know I am laying here cracking up laughing. Thanks for putting a smile on my face today. Just remember…not all of us can be creative. You can just give us the cute ideas and we can implement them. Who knows, you may be the lucky recipient of one of these difficult, time consuming, insane gifts yourself that crazy people like myself think that we just HAVE to make every year. Word for the New Year: Simplify. Happy Holidays!
