Expert Tips

If a grownup opens the can of fruit cocktail, slices the cherries and banana and chops the apple, children old enough to read should be able to prepare the rest of the salad more or less independently.

For a children's party, substitute marshmallows for the cheese slices. Or, if you're using cheese, cut it into shaped that suit the occasion.
