- 2 medium bananas
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup flaked coconut
- 4 raisins
- Thin pretzel sticks
- 1. Peel and slice each banana into ten slices. Make caterpillar by spreading slices with peanut butter and pressing pieces together.
- 2. Sprinkle half of coconut over each caterpillar and press lightly with fingertips to coat. Attach raisins to one end with a little bit of peanut butter for eyes. Break pretzel sticks into small pieces and press between banana slices for legs and antennae.
** Makes 2 servings. **
** Kids can be creative and add other types of sliced fruits (strawberries, apples, pears) to their caterpillars. **
Below is a picture of preschoolers from Kalaheo School in Hawaii enjoying the Banana Caterpillars. This was during my block internship rotation. I also made ants on a log as a fun treat for the kids.
