Rainbow fruit cup snack

Inspired by my assistant, Miss Lauren, who started bringing her lunch in a jar and created a rainbow fruit jar – I thought “Hey, our students would like that too!”

I gathered up some clear plastic cups with lids (donated to me by Panera Bread) and then purchased some fresh fruit for our class rainbow fruit in a cup snack. Our rainbow cups included (approximately)…

  • One red strawberry cut in half
  • Two mandarin orange slices
  • Two small pieces of yellow pineapple
  • Four green grapes
  • Six blueberries
  • Three purple grapes

The rainbow fruit choices were layered from red to purple in the clear plastic cups and the lid was put on top and the cups were set in the refrigerator until snack time the next morning.

Of course, we needed a cloud to go with our rainbow fruit cups so a little popcorn was added on the side.

And the children had the best rainbow fruit cup (and cloud) snack ever!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
