Funny Fruit

Martha Stewart Kids, Volume 5 2002

Here's a way to make a kid smile and let him know you're thinking of him during those long days when he's back at school. Place a smiling piece of fruit accompanied by a silly note in his lunch bag. Use a nontoxic dry-erase marker to make faces that are flavorless and safe to eat. Although a smile is always nice, a slumbering fruit with closed eyes is cute and a jolly face with a tongue sticking out is saucy and fun. Then write a short, happy note to include with the fruit, such as "You're apple-solutely fabulous!"
