Christmas Tree Shaped Fruit Platter

healthy Christmas snack, Christmas Fruit Plate, shaped fruit platter

I just had to share the fruit plate I made for the twins party today.  I added some drained Mandarin oranges and I think I like it even better than the first fruit tree

Wonder Mom also shared that she sometimes uses fresh cherries when she makes something similar to this tree.  I love that idea too.  Hmmm, maybe a heart for Valentine's Day?  No, she didn't really just mention a holiday two months away, shhh!

That is so wonderful! I would LOVE for you to come link this up in my new linky called Homescholing on the Cheap! It isn't just for people who homeschool but for ideas such as this that is cheap for kids to do and something with which they can learn & grow. This is perfect for the linky.

It is new every Thursday but the link stays up all week. Hope you stop in and share!

THanks, Kelli

Genius! Love that's it's so festive, but still healthy. Fruit is about the only healthy thing I can get my picky toddler to eat, so I will definitely have to make this for Christmas. (Maybe the adults can be a little healthier, too!) Now I just have to find a tree-shaped tray...
