When I discovered I could easily write on a banana with a toothpick, I got a little crazy with it. I wrote notes to my kids in their school lunches via the banana. I made scary faces to ring in the first day of October, and I made sweet heart bananas for the hubby. It's so easy and so fun. When my daughter wanted to get in on the fun, things got really silly.
How we did it:
Banana + toothpick = some major silliness!
Emma was giggling all through the process in hopes of surprising her little brother with a banana monster face. Oh to be a big sister.
It's pretty cool for kids to make an almost invisible face and watch it slowly appear within the hour.
I love finding art projects and silly laughs in places we never expected. It makes a semi-normal day get pretty exciting in the lives of two- and five-year-olds...
