  • 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.
