Can I say that I love, love, LOOOOOVE this idea?!?!? Well, not only because it was an original idea by yours truly…but it is also uber easy and economical. At Sam’s Club, I can purchase 1 large bunch of bananas for only $1.34 and I usually get about 8 or 9 bananas in a bunch. For that price, you can label your banana and eat it too – literally!
What I also love about this idea is that the kids get a kick out of it and the bananas are not damaged in the process. They are still good enough to eat once the party’s over.
This is a cool idea to add a little “spice” to your hubby’s lunch or a quick, loving note for your child’s lunchbox. It’s so simple and fast, you’ll find a million ways to use this neat tip.
You will need:
- Place the banana on a surface that will keep it steady (I started using the countertop then graduated to holding it in my hand).
- With your toothpick in your writing hand, steadily write your message in the skin of the banana. It will not be immediately visible.
- Let the banana(s) sit about 5 to 10 minutes. Your message will slowly appear. The longer you let it sit, the darker the message will become.
- Once the viewing pleasure is done, peel and eat banana. 😉
