Rocket Kabobs (Grades K-5)

In this activity, children will build a tasty rocket ship out of their favorite fresh fruits.

Bananas, grapes and a strawberry on a skewer to form a fruit kabob against an outer-space background

Fuel up on fresh fruit with this with this fun and super-healthy snack. Grapes and banana slices form stripes on this Rocket Kabob – much like the stripes on the famed Saturn V rocket.

What You Need

  • Bamboo skewers
  • Red or orange tissue paper (Or, try cutting cantaloupe into an interesting shape!)
  • Sliced bananas
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries

What To Do

  • Tear or cut the tissue paper into flames, then attach to the end of a skewer using tape or hot glue. 
  • Slide bananas and grapes on the skewer (leave some room at the top)
  • Cut the top off of a strawberry and slide the strawberry onto the skewer as a cap.
