Pirate Bananas

Eating plain bananas can get pretty boring, but you can spice it up with the help of washable markers!  Grab some of your favourite markers and head to the kitchen to make yourself a fun and delicious snack.

You’ll need the following:

  • Ripe bananas
  • Permanent markers and washable ink markers
  • Construction Paper
  • Scissors 


  1. Using the scissors cut the construction paper into a rectangle so the length is about 12cm and width is about 8cm.  Then using your washable ink markers create a design for your pirate’s clothes.
  2. Take a black permanent marker and draw your pirate’s face on the banana (hint start with the eye patch).
  3. Fold your pirate’s clothes onto the bottom of the banana.

Once you’re finished, be sure to show your family the creative healthy snack you made for yourself!
