It's a shame to throw away those empty fruit peels; they're both pretty and fragrant. So don't toss them in the trash anymore—show your kid how to embrace his "green" side by reusing citrus peels in a delicious, unique way. These natural serving dishes are a great way to add a crafty element to snack time!

What You Need:

  • Oranges (or lemons and limes)
  • Ice cream or sorbet
  • Spoon
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Serving tray
  • Freezer

What You Do:

  1. Take an orange (or other citrus fruit) and carefully cut it in half.
  2. Help your child scoop out the contents and eat them up as a snack, but be careful to keep each semi-circle half of the peel intact.
  3. Next, get a large scoop of your child's favorite flavor of ice cream or sorbet, and fill the citrus peel halves with yummy ice cream!
  4. Finally, have him set the creations in the freezer until they're ready to be served.
  5. Now it's time to enjoy your creations! Invite guests to eat up their sweet treat straight out of the decorative, homemade bowls. Just be sure not to eat the peels!
