Goofy Kids Breakfast: Snow Tubing Banana
Snow. I wish it would here in the Carolinas! There are so many fun activities to do in the snow, from snowball fights to catching snowflakes on your tongue, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have enough snow for snow tubing! I loved tubing when I was younger. Bringing a bit of winter fun to the breakfast table sparked some conversations about my childhood memories. I wish we lived in a colder climate so my children could experience the thrills of a winter wonderland. Maybe we will one day, but until then, we’ll have to live vicariously through our little banana friend.
What You’ll Need:
1 banana (cut in half)
2 miniature chocolate chips
1 pretzel ring (pretzel sticks would work, too)
1 miniature marshmallow
To Make Snow Tubing Banana:
Place prepared bagel onto a plate. Press breakfast cereal around the top part of the banana half to make the base of the hat. Hold the banana upside down over the sink and add sprinkles to the top point of the banana to make the rest of the hat. Press a miniature marshmallow on top of the point to complete the hat. Gently press the miniature chocolate chips into the banana for the eyes. (I used half of a Cheerio to make his smile.) Gently press the banana man into the hole of the bagel. Cut the pretzel ring into fourths and gently press the pieces into the banana for the arms and legs.
I can feel the wind in my face and hear his screams of glee just looking at him!
