Fruit Sushi!

Fruity Sushi

The recipe is really simple and makes an excellent activity. Take a banana and some toppings

(sprinkles, cut up candy bars, I used caramel balls here).

Wrap an entire fruit by the foot around the nanner,

slice up and have the kids put their topping on. It is a SMASH!

Literally!

Watching the kids pile the slices in their mouths and chewing looks quite like many adults eating sushi!

Put a 2-3 nail sized nibbles of different foods in trays to expose kids to lots of rotating flavors
