Rainbow Stew

I've had this pinned on my Flannels to Make Pinterest board for a while now, but yippee--I've finally made it!  I was inspired by this post at Roving Fiddlehead. Below the picture you'll find the words to the chant and a video that goes along with the pieces.  You can buy this set right here.


Take an apple
Put it in the pot
Stir it, stir it, stir it a lot.
Take it out. What will it be?
The prettiest red you ever did see.

And I have a video of this set in action right here: 

Have your rainbow strips already set up in a bowl or cooking pot, and have a spoon at the ready.  Don't let the kids see those strips hiding in the pot--after you add each piece of fruit and stir it up, you can magically pull out the rainbow strip the fruit has turned into!

With the success I've had with my veggies and The Soup is Boiling up, I'm sure this Rainbow Stew is going to be a hit!

The original set looked like this, but I've simplified the blueberries and grapes to save on creation time:
