Soft color wash fruits adorn notes of thanks to those who help support healthy eating habits.
Ask students what are some of their favorite fruits? Write a list of them with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Research nutrition information about each fruit. Students compare the amounts of vitamins A and C, fiber, and other nutritional values with their classmates.
Students draw large images of these fruits on construction paper. Make some fruit cut open, such as a kiwi with seeds, and others still with their peels on, such as bananas. Outline the edges of the fruit, and feature such as attached leaves, with Crayola Washable Markers. Use one color for the skin or rind, another for the fruit, and still another for the core, leaves, or stem.
Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Use a paintbrush to gently spread water from the marker outline to the center of the fruit, creating soft washes of color. Dry.
Add dimensional details, such as apple or watermelon seeds, with markers. If you save and dry real seeds from the fruit you eat, glue them to the card with Crayola School Glue for an extra touch of texture.
Cut out the fruits with Crayola Scissors. Fold construction paper into card shapes that fit your cut-out fruits. Attach the fruits with Crayola Glue Sticks.
Inside each card, write a thank-you note (or a request "please, could we have...") to a food-service worker at school. National School Lunch Week in October is the ideal time. Others who might enjoy receiving Fabulous Fruits thank-you notes are fruit growers, produce market workers, refrigerated truck drivers, dieticians, and the person at home who prepares meals!
