Isn't this the perfect snack to go along with The Little Mermaid (that's another story by Hans Christian Andersen, you know)? I found the idea for this banana mermaid, here, at ZiggyZoom.com.
We used one banana, one stick of string cheese, a few golden raisins (any light colored dried fruit would do), and craisins.
Cut a little off the back of the pieces, so the mermaid will lay flat.
I realized at this point, that the plate I was using was too small. This snack needs a full size dinner plate, to give the mermaid enough room.
String cheese hair:
Craisin and raisin clothing, and scales:
And, a raisin and raisin face:
I love having a snack that ties into what we're reading, and it was a nice change to make it a healthy one!
It's great to be a homeschooler.
