While hanging out on Pinterest and looking at some Valentine’s day inspiration, I saw a few posts with fruits that had cute printable messages on them.
I thought it would be FUN to do that for my little one.
But, making printables is too much work.
So, I took the easier, more simpler route
I grabbed my edible markers and simply wrote on the fruits… Easy peezy!
No need to make printables or print them or attach them… YAY!
My FAVORITE turned out to be these pears… they look adorable!
They were also not as waxy as the other fruits.
So, writing on them was very EASY
Writing on these bananas was also quite easy and I think the message on them is the CUTEST!
And my little one had a blast writing on them too… well, more like scribbling…hehe.
It kept him busy for a 15 full minutes and that’s a miracle…lol
I FORGOT to take a picture of his artsy bananas… Ahhhhh!
Btw, I tip my hat to people who photograph fruits coz I found it quite CHALLENGING.
These oranges were especially DIFFICULT to photograph.
They were moving around on their own will…
I had to tape them down so they stop wobbling! haha
And they are covered in a nasty waxy substance, which REFLECTS so much light :S
Even after washing them a few times, I COULDN’T get rid of all that icky wax.
I tried to take a few photographs from different angles but NOTHING was really working out…
I think this was one of the better photographs from the 30+ pics I took…lol.
Btw, PARDON the dryness of my hands.
Winter wreaks HAVOC on my skin and I haven’t been able to find a moisturizer that works well :S
When I bought these red apples, I didn’t realize I was going to use a black edible marker to write my messages.
Turns out that red and black DON’T complement each other too well, making it difficult to read the message… *sighs*
So, if you will be writing messages on apples, I SUGGEST you get yellow and green apples… those will work beautifully!
To prepare these Valentine’s day fruits with messages, you will need the following supplies:
Apples Bananas Pears Oranges Black edible marker Red edible marker
And here are the steps:
Step 1: Wash all your fruits and dry them properly with a small towel.
Step 2: Use a black edible marker to write your messages… On the Orange, write: “Orange you glad we are together?” On the pear, write: “We make a great pear” On the bananas, write: “I am bananas for you” On the apples, write: “You are the apple of my eyes”
Step 3: Use a red edible marker to draw little hearts around your messages.
And you are done!
Simple as can be
I think these fruits would be something FUN to add into your kids lunch boxes or even your hubby’s lunch box.
Can you imagine the looks on their faces when they open their lunch boxes and see these CUTE fruity messages?!
