Here is a fun way to encourage younger children to eat some fruit and maybe even participate in the preparation too? Who could resist nibbling a banana that looks like a dolphin?

Method

Make the mouth


Draw an "eye" onto the outside of the banana's skin close to the mouth, using a marking pen or biro. You could add "fins" on either side of the body, if you wish to make it even more realistic.

Lovely fresh grapes


Carefully place a whole grape into the dolphin's mouth to make it look like he is playing with a ball. You could make a whole family of dolphins for a water themed birthday party or perhaps just for fun. Enjoy.
