Banana Snacks of Art!

Since my kids are home for summer we are having a lot of play-dates. By a lot, I mean — A LOT. I have actually forgotten to schedule some time off so far. Yes it has only been a week and a half, but Momma needs some rest soon or she is going to go crazy.

Thank goodness today’s play-date is at my very best-friends house, which means I get to relax and unwind with her while all of the kids play. Each of our kids are the same age give-or-take a month (in one case only a day). So they pair off well and play together very well.

When we trade play-dates we arrange it so that whomever is hosting provides activities, the house, and is in charge of set-up. Whomever is visiting brings the snack, and does the clean-up. So today I am in charge of snack, and I found a fun one that is both healthy and fun for the kids — and while it looks fabulous, it really doesn’t require much work on my part.

Banana Boeing 747. It is basically fruit made to look like little airplanes. It works out perfect for everyone. It can be easily replicated, and you change the fruit out if you have an allergy, or just don’t like something. Since no one in our group has an allergy and our kids pretty much eat whatever you place in front of them I simply recreated the photo, but feel free to change it up!
