Note: for younger children, cut the grapes and blueberries in half lengthwise instead to reduce the risk of choking. 

Note: A grown-up must supervise and help with preparation.


  1. Wash and pat dry the grapes and blueberries. 
  2. Cut a small slice from the end of each grape, so that they can stand up vertically. 
  3. Cut a small slice from the side of each blueberry, so that they can stand up in the same way. 
  4. Arrange 3 green grapes, 2 blueberries and one red grape on the plate to make a caterpillar. Repeat until you have 4 grape caterpillars on the plate. 
  5. Use small drops of writing icing as ‘glue’ to stick 2 edible eyes onto the head grape of each caterpillar.  
  6. Serve immediately.
