Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Ernie and Bert Fruit Snack!

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We thought it would be fun to make Ernie and Bert out of fruit. We used 1 clementine, 1 banana, raisins, 2 mini marshmallows, and 1 red fruit roll up.

This is what we used to make 2 of these. Peel the clementine and save the peel. Separate it in half and put them on each plate. Peel the banana and cut in half. Place those on the plates.

For Ernie….cut a slit towards the bottom for his mouth. Roll up a fruit roll up tightly and then cut part of that for the nose. Cut a small piece for his tongue. Cut a mini marshmallow in half for his eyes. Cut a small raisin for the pupil on the eyes. Cut more of the raisins in half for his hair. Cut the reserved clementine peel for his ears.

For Bert…cut the reserved clementine peel for his nose. Cut the banana peel for his ears. Cut a mini marshmallow for his eyes. Cut a small raisin for the pupil on the eyes. Cut a slit for his mouth. Cut a small piece of fruit roll up for his tongue. Use 2 or 3 raisins for his eye brows. Cut raisins in half for his hair.

The boys are insisting that I let everyone know that this idea was for their baby brother and not for them.ha They have so out grown Sesame Street and have moved on to the big kid shows! There..I said it! However, I have to add that I watched them have too much fun making these and eating them…even if they will never admit it!

Linking up to these awesome link parties…please check them out!

  26. Great idea!! I'd love to share this with our readers at next week's link up at on Monday. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Very cute! I love the idea! At first I thought Ernie's ears and Bert's nose were dried apricots – you could use those instead of peel if you want the whole thing to be edible, no? πŸ™‚ Bert's ears sort of look like almond slivers, so that might also work to be peel-free. Thanks for the idea!
