Use a pin, or thumb tack, to poke the skin of the banana.
Wait. The image will slowly appear, kind of like a Polaroid image.
With the constant rain here on the west coast, I’ve been searching for ideas to keep the kids occupied indoors. This one was great because it kept their attention for at least a half hour, and they would happily do it again with different images!
Thanks to Cindy for the inspiration! I instantly thought, “The kids would LOVE this!” I hope you know someone that might like it too!
And for those of you that want to take it to the next level, check out this video to see some pretty amazing banana tattoos!
This pillow (and it’s mate) have been subjected to years of mistreatment by the boys. All the polyester stuffing was lumpy beyond repair. I kept them around because the boys played with them all the time. But, now that the family room has some new pillows, it was time for them to leave home.
Rather than throw them in the garbage, I thought that I would answer the pleas of a sick boy and make him a stuffed animal… out of one of the pillows! I cut the cover into body parts, sewed them together, and used the old polyester filling to stuff him. TA DA! Recycling at its best!
(Disclaimer: This picture is of the younger brother who was happy to steal away the new stuffed animal from his older brother.)
