Once a week, there is great excitement in my sons class… One of the children gets to “sell” a fruit treat to all of their classmates. Fruitseller is a pretty big thing for the kids, they love sharing their special treat with everyone.
Turns out, it’s a pretty big thing for the parents too… For different reasons though!
We have to try and come up with something interesting, creative, AND healthy (aka no chocolate dipped strawberries) that can be made en-mass (28kids), and the fruit has to hang in there till their tea time treat! So I find myself trawling through pinterest (you know how I love pinterest) trying to find something interesting i can do for his fruitseller day!
Having bought banana’s – I was wary to do anything – because bananas can go pretty miff… But then I stumbled onto a banana sandwich that used peanut butter – which got my brain jumping into gear… And so the “flower stool” came into being!
Stand the one side on a plate (so that it doesn’t go brown), and use some peanut butter and bread to “secure” the other side… And I was sorted (And super proud of myself)!!
If peanut allergies are a problem for the kids… The bread sticks well to the banana… Slightly less tasty, but it does the job (alternatively… Try some smooth cottage cheese.
I was also thinking that some raisins would have finished off the flower… But I didn’t have any in my cupboard – and so I ditched that mission.
Have any good suggestions for Fruitseller?
