The kiwi was fun to paint, and I am sure I'll do it again, but I had forgotten to bring a knife so attempted to saw the fruit in half with a pair of blunt scissors, until one of my students whipped out her handy dandy exacto knife and saved the day. Mushy kiwi is not pretty. Trust me on that.
Here are some key kiwi facts we learned today. After reading these insightful observations about kiwi, you will feel like an instant kiwi aficionado and will be able to impress friends at parties with your vast and impressive store of kiwi info.
Saw your kiwi in half with a sharp blade, not a dull pair of scissors or else you get mushy kiwi
Kiwi seeds are kind of dark purpley greenish colored
The light green around the juicy center is kind of stripey looking
The outer color of a kiwi is a color that has no name and takes about 10 minutes to describe
