To make an unusual fruit salad, you will also need toothpicks. Cut the washed pear in half and turn one of the halves cut side down. Insert toothpicks, imitating the needles of a hedgehog. String washed grapes on toothpicks. We make eyes on the narrow side of the pear: place two toothpicks and string of black grapes on them, make a kiss. On the back of the hedgehog you can attach tangerine slices and apples. Let your child turn on the imagination and decorate the back of the hedgehog with other berries or fruits if you want.
