Labor day is right around the corner and with it comes the (socially distant) Labor Day barbecues. End the season off right with these delicious and beautiful rainbow fruit skewers! While these might be a little bit more difficult and time consuming than putting all this fruit in a bowl, the impressive appearance definitely makes up for that. These rainbow fruit skewers are not only a crowd-pleaser with how delicious they are, but you will for sure receive some compliments for how pretty they look.

To make the process easiest, I like to set up an assembly line in the order of the fruits. There are so many options for each color, so be sure to use whatever is your favorite. Some options are:
|Green||kiwi, honeydew, green grapes|
|Clouds||marshmallows, yogurt dip, whipped cream|
For my skewers, I used watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, purple grapes, and marshmallows.
If you are making these by yourself, just start from one end and work your way through the rainbow. These are also great to make with multiple people or kids, and each person is assigned to a fruit or fruits. Then you just pass the skewer down the line.
I love using a large clear tray to line the skewers up, but use whatever you have. Try to make about 1-2 rainbow fruit skewers per person.
