Healthy Butterfly Snack

Spring has FINALLY made it to Massachusetts.  To celebrate nicer weather, I recently made butterfly snacks for the kids.  This is super easy to make.  Simply slice a banana in half, spread peanut butter (or any other nut butter) along the banana slices, add symmetrical raisins, grape halves in the middle, and carrot pieces for antennae.

There are so many great butterfly books.  Here is one we have enjoyed:

What is your favorite butterfly book?

Also, have you read The Butterfly by Patricia Polacco?  We haven't read it yet, but I have requested it from the library.  In this book for children ages six and up, the butterfly is a symbol of freedom during World War II.  When a French village is occupied by Nazi Germany, a young French girl finds a Jewish girl hiding in her basement and a special friendship develops.  This book is based on a true story. 


  1. Ooh, the second book looks SO interesting! I love Patricia Polacco books because of illustrations and complex characters. The snack looks awesome too!

  2. I love her books, they're always so well thought out, and teach great lessons. I haven't read that one, but I've read many of her others.

  3. My two youngest would go "bananas" for this snack! I'll have to try to make it. You have the best snacks!

  4. Such yumminess I stumbled upon. Oh how we love butterflies around here, good reads, and snacks.

    It's a delight to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.
