Ingredients: 1 apple 1/4 c. dried coconut, shredded 1 banana 1 cup nonfat yogurt 1/3 c. red seedless grapes 1/3 c. green seedless grapes 2/3 cup pineapple chunks Utensils: knife (You'll need help from your adult assistant.) 2 wooden skewer sticks large plate
Directions: Prepare the fruit by washing the grapes, washing the apples and cutting them into small squares, peeling the bananas and cutting them into chunks, and cutting the pineapple into chunks, if it's fresh. Put the fruit onto a large plate. Spread coconut onto another large plate. Slide pieces of fruit onto the skewer and design your own kabob by putting as much or as little of whatever fruit you want! Do this until the stick is almost covered from end to end. Hold your kabob at the ends and roll it in the yogurt, so the fruit gets covered. Then roll it in the coconut. Repeat these steps with another skewer

Make sure the arm is long enough so it can cover the mouth. Discuss how germs spread and make people sick. Remind the children that covering their mouths is a way to help keep others healthy
What You Need: *Some Clear, pure glycerin soap bars ( like Neutrogena) *Shape molds for soap, Playdough or candy *Pot holders and a Microwave What To Do: 1.) Cut the glycerin soap into small pieces (1 or 2 inches chunks) or grate them with a food processor 2.) Put the soap bits into a microwave safe bowl 3.) Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds. The soap should soften into a liquid. 4.) Using potholders, remove the hot liquid soap from the microwave 5.) Pour the soap into the shape molds. 6.)
