What You Need:
- 3-4 bananas
- Peanut butter
- 2 or more graham crackers
- Plastic knife
- Chocolate syrup (optional)
What You Do:
- Using the plastic knife, cut each banana widthwise, then cut each banana half in half lengthwise. You should have 12 (or 16 if using 4 bananas) half circle-shaped pieces of banana.
- Now that you have your banana building blocks, it's time to build. Have your child arrange 4 banana pieces in a square on the plate. This will be the base of your log cabin.
- Spread peanut butter over the banana base, then stack four more bananas on top. Encourage your child to be creative with the placement of the bananas.
- Help your child continue stacking the bananas on top of each other, spreading a layer of peanut butter between each row, until all the bananas have been used.
- Spread a layer of peanut butter on the top of the banana log cabin, then place two graham crackers on top in the shape of a triangle to create the roof. Add a small amount of peanut butter between the graham crackers where they meet to help them stick together.
- Have your child paint the finished cabin with chocolate syrup (optional).
- Step back and admire your banana log cabin with your child, then grab a couple forks and dig in!
Garnish with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, and you've got a delicious President's Day dessert.
