Christmas banana snowman’s
1/4 of a carrot
Handful of currents or sultanas chopped
•Cut the bananas into thick slices (approx. 9 rounds per banana)
•Peel the carrot and cut into small triangular slivers for a pointy nose
•Trim the stem from the strawberries and then cut in half. You should get two hats out of each strawberry
•Cut the grapes in half. (We only used the smooth half and ate the stem end)
•To assemble, thread three slices of banana on to each skewer followed by a strawberry hat and grape half. Gently press the currents into the banana slices to create eyes and the buttons on the body then add the carrot nose
*Tip: Chop everything up, place all the bits in separate bowls and then have the kids assemble the snowmen.
*Safety note: Please be careful with using sharp skewers when cooking with children. If necessary cut or break off the pointy end to avoid injury.
