One of our Facebook followers mentioned making a healthier version of our Twinkie Bus for her daughter since she is not a fan of sweets…so we came up with this Back to School Banana Bus decorated with fruit!
This took us less than 10 minutes to make even not knowing how we were going to make it. Our bananas were less than perfect so I am sure you could make this look a lot better.
2 Dark Grapes (or Blueberries)
Black Edible Marker
Take the banana and cut off a little from the bottom so it will sit up straight. Draw a line in the middle of the side with your black edible marker. Take the cut off piece from the bottom and pop off the banana attached to the peel. Cut strips with a knife and then into small squares. Press the small square cut outs on the side for windows. Cut off the end of the banana. We used scraps to make a bumper. Cut off a small corner out of the front end. Set aside. Then cut more off almost to the bottom. Place the first cut out piece on top. Cut off the end of a strawberry for the stop sign. Everything will stick on. That’s it!
My boys & their neighborhood friends loved it!
Here is our Twinkie Bus…
