Chop fruit and veggies*

Trim cilantro*

Kitchen shears can be great for this task!

Juice limes

Mix ingredients together

Kids will love this colorful display of fruits and veggies!

We’re big fans of these Opinel kids knives. For preparing the cilantro (if you don’t want to chop), these OXO kitchen shears or Kuhn Rikon kids snippers are great (with adult supervision).

*Note: For toddlers especially, these tasks require adult supervision and/or assistance, as items may be sharp, hot or otherwise dangerous.
