Healthy Tailgate Snack Idea – the Fruitball Player!
I dub these creations – “Fruitball Players!!!”
Simon and Grace had so much fun putting these “fruitball players” together. On the left is Simon’s boy player, and on the right is Grace’s girl player.
First gather up fruit, toothpicks, yogurt, and anything else you desire.
Use sturdy fruits to build the body, and then start adding football equipment, arms, and legs.
Here you can see banana shoulder pads, strawberry arms, and a grape head. Everything is attached with toothpicks.
After he was assembled, we cut an apple slice into a football. A toothpick held the football in front. Then, Simon really wanted him to wear a football helmet. I carefully cut out the insides of the strawberry and cut through the end just enough to show a face. Then I used yogurt to add eyes, a nose, and a smile.
Grace’s girl “fruitball player” had apple legs, apple leg pads, strawberry arms and feet, and a grape football. I also painted a yogurt face on her.
Simon really wanted to add banana socks to the boy’s grape shoes.
After everything was made, the kids admired their “fruitball players” with hungry eyes. . .
And then we ate then all up – yum! Cheers for healthy, kid-friendly tailgating food!
