Here’s a summer snack you can serve your family this summer – or anytime! It has a very special meaning that kids will love – about a fruitful family life!
– Pineapple chunks
– Black berries
– Seedless grapes
– Lollipop sticks or wood kabob sticks, 3 for each child, 4 for each parent
– Strawberry low fat yogurt or yogurt fruit dip
– Cute the tops off strawberries and wash all fruit.
– String 3 or 4 strawberries, pineapple chunks, blackberries, and grapes on each lollipop stick in a variety of orders.
– Place fruit kabobs on a serving tray.
– In a bowl, place the yogurt or yogurt dip. Put it in the middle of the tray or just beside for dipping.
Hold up a Kabob. If we think about it, this kabob looks a little like a loving family, doesn’t it? Which fruit looks most like a dad? Strawberry because it’s biggest. Which looks most like a baby? Grape because it is smallest. The pineapple and the blackberries look like older brothers and sisters, don’t they? What is holding this fruit altogether? The stick. Families have something that holds them together too. Can anyone think of what that is? Has anyone ever heard the old song, “Love will keep us together?”
These sticks are like love. We’re all unique, different from our parents and siblings. But love holds a family together. For the most loving and successful family, one other thing is needed besides each other and love. Can you guess what that is?
Hold up the dip. Dip your kabob into the dip. We need to be touched by something special, something sweet, and something that will cover us and make us strong. We need to be touched by God!
Let’s serve our family and make a special commitment today to keep the Fifth Commandment all year. Which is the Fifth Commandment? Honor your father and your mother! If we show honor to our parents, and surround ourselves in God’s love, (dip the fruit again into the dip), we will have a very fruitful existence!
