Caterpillar Fruit Kabobs Party Food Idea!

Caterpillar Fruit Kabobs Party Food Idea - Must Have Mom

These adorable little caterpillar fruit kabobs were a huge hit at our garden party we hosted earlier this month! The girls loved them and I loved that they were a healthy, fun party food without all the sugar that usually comes with party food. They were quick and easy to make too! These would work great for a Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party, an animal themed party, or just a fun playdate snack.

To make them start with a wood skewer which you can find at any big box store or kitchen store. Slide a grape on about 1/3 of the way down the skewer and stop.

Finish until you have an inch or so of wood skewer sticking up.

Next use frosting to add sugar eyes to the caterpillars. I bought the Wilton sugar eyes in the cake decorating section and just used regular frosting to attach them to the strawberries. Aren’t they cute?! Almost too cute to eat. Almost.

Easy party food that you can make in about ten minutes but looks magazine ready!
