diy fruit salad party bowl

well this has to be one of the cutest projects i’ve ever made– inspired by poppy and his love of fruit, and thus inspired by arlo and similar his love of fruit, i wanted to create little fruit “puppets” that could all be housed in one big bowl.

draw and cut out fruit shapes from cardboard, let your kid paint each one (my trick for not mixing the colors up is to do a big palette with all the colors and a designated brush for each). once dry, attach googly eyes and a popsicle stick. fold a paper plate in half and tape across the seam. cut slits on the top for each fruit and stick them in!
