Peanut Butter Banana Caterpillar

My little dude is really into bugs and everything creepy crawly. Over the weekend he was on a play date and his buddy’s mom served the most adorable treat: a peanut butter banana caterpillar. Since then it’s all he can talk about; he shares about it every day at school during circle time, and every afternoon he asks to make one, but I keep forgetting to buy bananas. Today I finally bought some bananas and I’m going to surprise him with this fun and healthy snack. I think he’s gonna freak.
