We can’t get enough of the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat fruit kabobs we made earlier this week. My daughter’s school will be having a Dr. Seuss day soon to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Besides making this Lorax craft, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate at home than to make these tasty fruit kabobs inspired by the book The Cat in the Hat – one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books.
Aren’t they the cutest? Believe me I was scared to draw faces on the marshmallows because drawing is not my strong suit, but they turned out great. They are completely edible since the markers are made out of edible material. My daughter got in on the fun and helped me draw a few faces (not shown).
How to make Cat in the Hat Fruit Kabobs
Food Writer Marker – (Don’t use a real marker. This is an edible marker!)
Bamboo Skewers – (I cut mine in half to get rid of sharp tip and to make them shorter)
Lemon Juice – if you plan serving these the next day, find out how to keep the bananas from browning here.
Using Wilton’s Food Writer Marker, draw cat faces on one side of the marshmallow. Don’t worry if they don’t look perfect. From far away it will look fine and it’s what’s inside that really counts. Believe me, they are tasty!
Slice bananas into pieces.
Slice strawberries into pieces and also caught off the tip of each strawberry to resemble a cone/triangle shape. (This will be the top of the hat.)
Next, grab a Bamboo Skewer to begin layering the food in this order: marshmallow, strawberry slice, banana, strawberry slice, banana and top with the strawberry tip that looks like a hat top.
