What To Do With Fake Fruit

2013-11-04 10.03.11There was a time in my life when I needed fake fruit and I knew just the person to call.

Thank God for moms.

Using props when teaching Spanish is a good technique. Back in the day, walking into the preschool rooms with a basket of fruit on my head was a sure way to get attention and made my teaching more successful.

My mom always had fake fruit around the house. It wasn’t uncommon for kids to bite into what they thought was a real apple. We often had to ask because she would occasionally mix real and fake. It was hard to tell the difference.

If you are ready to declutter your fruit or simply need a change then consider getting rid of them.  I mean no disrespect for those that want to decorate with glass grapes or plastic fruit. They do add a nice touch and can make any kitchen come alive but maybe it’s time.

If you need them, like for teaching Spanish, then keep but if you don’t use, or need or enjoy then put them in the goodwill bag.

It’s just plastic fruit after all. If you find that you suddenly need some, make a trip to the dollar store.
