These banana messages are so much fun! They only take a minute to make and kids get a kick out of them.
It’s really easy to draw a message onto the banana. All you have to do is bruise the skin by dragging a toothpick over it. If you’re out of toothpicks, you could use a knife instead.
If you want the message really dark, you can break the skin, which is what I did for the banana pictured above.
Also, since it darkens as time goes on, I actually do this at night and slip it into my daughter’s lunch box for the next day. But you could do it that morning, as well.
She also enjoys getting a banana that has her name carved into it, or with fun stickers attached to it.
