Magic message bananas

 I thought these were fun!

 

I think these fun little magic messages might replace paper lunchbox notes in the kids' lunches when school starts.  They definitely got a kick out of them for a summer snack.


Best thing is, they were SUPER easy!

Here's what you do:

1.  Using a toothpick, draw a picture or write a message on your banana peel.



2.  At first, it will be rather tough to see.



3.  But after several minutes, your magic message will begin to darken.



4.  After about an hour (or by lunchtime if you pack it in a lunch box), you'll have an easy-to-read special message that your child will love to read.


** NOTE **  I've found that the message tends to show up more quickly when the banana is more ripe.

Thanks for sharing. Bananas are one of the few fruits my son will eat without complaint. I think he will get a kick out of this. :)

every time I see this post I read it as "massage" instead of "message", it gives me a chuckle every time too lol.

That's so cool. I always write a note on my son's napkin. But I love this idea.
