What ingredients do you need to make a Christmas Fruit Tree?

For the green Christmas tree branches we used cut kiwi fruit into circles. You can save a cut part with skin on for the stem. Our fruit ornaments were made of raspberries, blueberries, and mandarin oranges. We created a pineapple star out of cut pineapples. You can really use any fruits on hand. Pomegranate seeds would be really pretty and add a nice ruby red. Seasonal fruits like pears, persimmons or cranberries would also add festive pops of colors!

How do you make this Christmas Tree Food Art?

There really isn’t any right or wrong way! You can add all your fruits into small cups and have the kids first start by layering the kiwi fruit to make a triangle base for the branches. Add your stem at the bottom. Then the fun part begins. Adding fruit ornaments on top! If you don’t have pineapple chunks for the star, you can cut a star shape out of a hard fruit like pears, apple,s or mango. You can also use a small star cookie cutter.
