Beat the Heat with Fun & Fruity Rainbow Kabobs! ☀️

Summer is here, and with it comes the sunshine, the beach days, and the constant battle against the rising temperatures. Who needs a heavy meal when you can cool down with a refreshing, fun, and oh-so-colorful treat?

These DIY Rainbow Fruit Skewers are the perfect answer! They're bursting with flavor, healthy enough for a snack, and most importantly, a blast to make with the whole family.


  • Wooden skewers (enough for your desired number of skewers)
  • Rainbow selection of fruits! Here are some ideas:
    • Strawberries
    • Blueberries
    • Kiwi
    • Cantaloupe
    • Honeydew melon
    • Grapes (red, green, or a mix!)
  • Optional: Yogurt for dipping (plain or flavored)
  • Optional: Honey or agave nectar for drizzling

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Wash and dry all your fruits. Kiddos can help with this step!
  2. Cut your fruits into bite-sized pieces. This is a great opportunity to get creative with shapes. Try cutting strawberries into hearts, kiwi into stars, or use a melon baller for perfectly round cantaloupe and honeydew pieces.
  3. Line up your wooden skewers. Now comes the fun part - fruit threading! Take turns with your family, letting everyone add their favorite colors and fruits to create a vibrant rainbow on a stick.
  4. Once your skewers are complete, it's time to enjoy! You can serve them plain, or get fancy with some dipping options. Plain yogurt (flavored or unflavored) makes a perfect creamy companion. Drizzle with a touch of honey or agave nectar for added sweetness.


  • Younger children may need help with cutting the fruit.
  • Get creative with your fruit selection! Use what's in season or what your family loves.
  • Make sure the fruit pieces are not too big to fit comfortably on the skewers.
  • Pre-cut the fruit ahead of time for a quick and easy grab-and-go snack.

These Rainbow Fruit Skewers are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, perfect for picnics, backyard barbecues, or a refreshing after-school treat.
