Finding it hard to entice the kids away from all the seasonal treats?

Turn their afternoon tea into a Christmas tree and problem solved!

You Will Need:

  • Fruit – we used strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes, and kiwi fruit
  • Polystyrene foam cone
  • Toothpicks

Useful Items:

  • Chopping board and knife
  • Cookie cutters (optional)


  1. Prepare all the fruit. For extra fun, we used a small star cookie cutter for the cantaloupe.
  2. Insert the toothpick into the polystyrene cone.
  3. Place the fruit onto the toothpick.
  4. Continue until the cone is all covered.
