Play Fruit Templates

Tutti Frutti! Play fruit is a must for your play kitchen or grocery stand! Although there are many lovely wooden or soft ones available out there, if you love paper craft and making something yourself, try these printable templates to make some juicy fruit! They will also make colorful decoration in kids rooms.

Play Fruit Templates

There are templates for an apple, pear, banana, pineapple, kiwi, lemon, watermelon, strawberry, raspberry and blue berry. We could go on and on because we love all fruit!

Print and cut the templates, score the dotted lines with an empty ball point pen, then glue all the tabs. It’s always tricky to glue the last part that closes the shape so fold these last tabs outward so you can press against them,¬†apply plenty of glue on both the tabs and the corresponding part to close. Then press the last part against these tabs and hold. If you have glue on both sides, they will glue together easily.

    So bright and quirky! I’m studying nutrition and going to make some of these to stick on my hat at my college graduation!

    • mrprintables

      That sounds fab! We’d love to see your fruit hat!! : )

    Gorgeous! Have you heard of “Handa’s Surprise”? I’m going to use some of these for when I do lesson extensions to the story. If you would like to add more fruit, that would be truly wonderful. :)

    • mrprintables

      It’s new to me – thanks! It looks like a great story for fruit activities! I can see we need more tropical fruit! ^ ^

    • Jasmine Elizabeth

      i just searched online for some fruit for Handas Surprise.. doing the book this week ! :)

  • Bellenza

    So adorable!!

  • chloho

    These look great! What was the thickness of the paper you used?

    • mrprintables

      Sorry for the late reply..! I used what’s called ‘heavy weight matte paper’. Hope this is useful. ^ ^

  • hreeves

    This is so much fun! I will definitely put to use!! :)

  • KidsCareList

    Absolutely marvelous. Had to put these on our fb page.

  • Lilo Zsolnay

    Very sweet! But lots of work and quickly destroyed by my 4&6 YO boys :)

    • mrprintables

      Ooh, cute, thanks for sharing! If you use card stock / heavyweight papers, they are quite sturdy. : )

  • Deborah

    Hi, is there a demo on how to fold these tabs. Thanks.

  • Dominique

    I had an issue when putting together the banana. All of the other fruit seemed to go together perfectly, but when I got to the banana I have not been able to piece them together. When I printed the template for the banana, it seems that the piece #2 is just a few centimeters shorter than the corresponding piece. When I did the first one, part of the stem just wouldn’t line up. I thought it must be because it was the first but the second one came out the same. Piece #2 is too small. Please let me know if you could help remedy this problem. I am using these fruit for a lesson and the banana is part of the lesson. Thank you for your time. PS. your contact page is broken, when you click contact me you get the Thank You for contacting us page, the contact form is missing.
    Have a great day.

    Thanks for sharing this cute and clever toy :)

  • Ada Truong

    So stylishly simplistic ^0^
    I just have one problem with the apple and pear templates: for the stem, do I need to find my own accordingly colored paper, cut it , and roll it? Or is there something I’m missing?
    Also, is there a way to perhaps crop out other fruits for, say, the blueberry? This is in taking in the consideration that a single, lonely berry is never eaten alone, and that ink should be conserved if ever possible.

  • Mockeri

    I love this! All your 3D food printables are amazing!

  • Lani

    what box did you use in the picture??

  • M Wolf

    These are simply wonderful! I am a nutritionist and I’ve been trying to find good fruit and veggie toys for my 14-month-old daughter to play with. So many fruit and veg toys are plastic, which I try to avoid. So these are going to be perfect for her. Also, we are traveling to the Caribbean in a couple of weeks and I’ve been looking for new, lightweight toys to take along. I’m going to print these and cut them out, then just take a tiny bottle of glue with me. Perfect! Thank you for sharing the fruits of your creativity with us. ;)

  • Mrs Elliott

    I’ve decided to use these as ‘favour bags’ for my kid’s first birthday. I’m thinking I could just about squeeze a biscuit and a tiny tube of bubbles into the larger fruits! I’ll have to take some pictures :-)

  • Emma Hill

    Please I would like to have the templates for the beautiful box they are in please
