You can use this activity to establish important, basic kitchen skills.
Begin by having everyone wash their hands.
Then talk about how to safely use a knife, including how to hold the knife and where to position both hands.
While you supervise, have everyone chop up half a banana and two or three strawberries each. Then arrange them in a stripy pattern to create their own fruity candy cane.
