I don’t know about you but my boy is OBSESSED with space right now.
Is it just a boy thing?
I can’t say as I only have one son, but he’s obsessed. He loves the moon and has taken a real interest in the solar system. I recently got one of the lift the flap books about Space and I think this has sparked his interest even more.
I was lying in bed the other night (as you do) and thought, hey what if we try and make the solar system out of fruit?! So there I am, middle of the night, planning fruit solar systems. And here we have it. Hope it was worth the loss of sleep haha.
For this fruit solar system I used the following:
An orange, a kiwi, a strawberry, some grapes and blueberries.
Oh and a thin slice of banana – using the peel to create Saturn’s rings.
I used some dried coconut to make stars. Although b thought it was snow. This really was one of the quickest fun food plates I’ve made – it took minutes. You literally just have to slice fruit!
To be honest, the plate is super bare. It would work better on a blue/black plate or tray. Also, I didn’t serve b just a few grapes and half a slice of orange for tea! I made a few fun food things today and served him a number of different plates. I also didn’t waste any fruit – in case you were wondering 😉 You can check out some of my tips for using up leftovers here.
