Fuzzy Caterpillars

This weeks theme over at unplug your kids was Fruit. When I heard this I thought about doing this project. Then I noticed that it can take days to dry and I just did not have that kind of time. So I decided to make "Fuzzy Caterpillars". I found this in a cookbook awhile back. I just do not remember which one or I would tell you. Sorry.
The ingredients that you need are Bananas, peanut butter, coconut, and raisins.
Step one: Peel and cut the banana in half.
Step 2: Cover the banana in peanut butter. The boys found this step easier to just use their hands. Gets messy but a really yummy mess.
Step 3: Then cover the peanut butter in coconut (thats the fuzzy part)
Step 4: Add some raisins for eyes.
Gabe made his into fuzzy little race cars. At least that is what he says it is.
Sam added on extra raisins for the legs. So go eat some caterpillars. Make sure to check back next week for a new project. Until then check over here and see what everyone else is doing.

those are gorgeous!!

a tip on my orange iceblocks.. I added a little water and a small teaspoon of sugar (to the bowl - not to each iceblock) and they tasted so good!
