When you were growing up, we’re sure you heard your parents say, “don’t play with your food” a time or two. While this may have been said for a good reason back in the good old days, don’t let it keep you and your kids from enjoying your meals; it’s ok to let loose a little and have fun with the snacks you make for your kids (within reason, of course…we would hate for you to end up with spaghetti and meatballs all over your floors!).


(feel free to substitute your favorite fruits)

  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Grapes
  • Bananas
  • Coconut (shredded)
  • Honey


Slice the watermelon into rounds – these will be your “pizza crusts.” Cut each round into triangles, 4-6 slices depending on the size of your watermelon.

Spread a thin layer of honey evenly over all the watermelon slices.

Chop your fruit into small pieces. We used sliced green grapes for “peppers,” blackberries for “olives,” strawberries for “tomatoes,” and bananas for “mushrooms.”

Place the fruit evenly over the watermelon. Sprinkle with shredded coconut for “cheese.”
