Banana Dolphins

Use a knife to cut a banana in half, and to carefully separate the long end as in photo. Use a grape to prop mouth open. Draw on eyes with marker or pencil. Set inside a small bowl and add more grapes. Your kids will flip for this – makes a cute after school snack – pair with some goldfish crackers!!
