B Is for Bobbing Banana Boy

Completed Bobbing Banana Boy snack

Just in time for summer, here’s a refreshing ABC Snacks recipe that is as fun to create as it is to eat. Better yet, it’s healthy, too!

What’s your favorite way to beat the summer heat? If your answer is a relaxing float in the pool … we couldn’t agree more!

But if it’s not quite warm enough for a swim where you live, don’t worry. You and your preschooler can do some pretend splashing around while assembling our Bobbing Banana Boy snack!

While munching on yummy berries, your preschooler will have a blast getting this banana prepared for a day at the pool. Are you ready for a dip? Go ahead and dive right in, but don’t forget your floaties!

I understand it can be difficult to make fun food for little ones with special dietary needs. I’m happy this Banana Boy can be enjoyed by your daughter!

Great idea! I never thought about fruit crafts for learning the alphabet!

Jennifer

says:

I love the “floaties” for Banana Boy! He looks great! Although I will probably sacrifice the fruit theme to find something a little smaller for eyes :)

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Maybe mini-chocolate chips, Jennifer? Although, I think the fruit slices are supposed to be sunglasses and not just eyes. Of course, to me, they look more like swim goggles, but that works too.
