Snowmen Fruit Kabobs

I got the idea for these "Snowmen on a Stick" from February's issue of Disney Family Fun. Even though we have been wearing shorts and running the AC here in Houston, it must be snowing somewhere!! Regardless of weather, these guys are a cute, fun snack! 

Here is the list of ingredients I used, but you could get creative with whatever you have around the house:
  • Wooden skewers
  • 1 banana, sliced into thick slices (1/2" - 1")
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Fruit leather/sour straws (for scarves)
  • Orange Starburst, sliced for nose (cantaloup or carrots would work too)
  • Sprinkles, chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips and/or raisins for eyes and buttons
  • Apple slices,  strawberry slices, blueberries and/or marshmallows (for hats) 

Make sure to slice the banana thick enough. If you slice it too then, it will tear apart when you skewer it. Assemble snowmen and snack away! WP loved these and got excited naming all of the different fruit. "Oh.... a raisin!"
