Fruit Kabobs!

I took my daughter to a birthday tea party for one of her friends, and they had these great fruit kabobs there. They were so good, looked so easy to make, and it made the table look so much more colorful and fun. I thought these would be a great side to take with a meal that you're bringing to someone. If you're anything like me, I'm always trying to find an easy and simple side to bring- and usually end up doing something like brownies. Well, these are much healthier and more fun!

Makes about 15 kabobs (so adjust amounts if you don't need that many):
-Kabob Sticks (I found these at Walmart- I'm sure you can find them anywhere)
-2 pints of strawberries, washed and tops cut off (but keep them whole)
-1 can of cut up pineapple (or you can just get fresh pineapple- I'm all about easiest, so guess which one I got?!) :)
-1 bunch of red grapes, washed
-about 4 or 5 Kiwi- peeled, cut into chunks

Then comes the fun- you just alternate each piece of fruit on the kabob until it's filled. I'm so bummed I didn't take a picture of the ones I made this past Sunday- sorry about that!
