Here are a few fun things
you can do with peaches:
- Slice a peach into 8 bites. Stick a toothpick into each. Freeze. Use as dippers in strawberry yogurt.
- Save the pits (the seeds inside the peach). They are great to use in crafts. You can glue them together to make picture frames for your parents.
- Ask Dad to drill a hole through clean dry peach pits. String together to make jewelry.
- For a refreshing drink, add peaches to your iced tea for peach sweet tea.
