Sharp followers of this blog will note that Banana Split Day was also celebrated in the last week. Maybe someone overdid it on their banana order and came up with Banana Lovers’ Day just two days later to get read of extras! In any event, here’s another fun banana snack:


Banana Caterpillar

Materials:

  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter
  • Grapes
  • Chow mien noodles
  • Knife
  • Plates

Directions:

  1. Peel a banana and slice it lengthwise.
  2. Use peanut butter to attach chow mien noodles to banana to form legs.
  3. Use peanut butter to attach grape to one end of banana to make the head.
  4. Gently poke two noodles into grape to form a head with antennae.
