Kwanzaa Fruits


The word Kwanzaa means "the first fruits." Introduce this African American holiday to children. Then invite them to share in this fruit snack.

  • Cut up pieces of banana, apple, orange, and pineapple.
  • Place some of each fruit on black paper plates for each child.
Provide children with red and green toothpicks to eat their fruit, reminding them that red, green, and black are the colors of Kwanzaa.
