Banana Pudding

 For our mid-morning snack today we decided to make our own banana pudding. 
 The boys were definitely game.

They each got some vanilla wafers, vanilla pudding cup, whipped cream, and a banana (not shown)
First thing they had to do was put some vanilla wafers in the bottom of their cup.  Look at those gorgeous blue eyes.
That's one way to get the cookies into the cup.
After a quick clean up Bubby G wanted to show off his cup too.
Next you spoon your vanilla pudding on top of the vanilla wafers.
I did not say that it is time to start eating your cookies....
He's not listening to me.
Next, the boys needed to cut up their banana.

Nice job!!!  I tried to tell him to turn his knife over....but he liked it better this way.
Well...Bubby G, that's one way to cut a banana.
My nephew is going to be 3 in May and does a pretty good job of cutting the banana...
Bubby G will be 2 in June and prefers stabbing his banana.
But he's getting the job done.  Even if it is in his own way.
Hey....wait a minute....I didn't say that it was time to start eating your banana.  Lil Stinker!!!
After they cut up their banana then they needed to put it on top of their vanilla pudding in their cup.
Now we're getting some small pieces of banana cut up. It looks like he gave up on the big piece of banana and just went ahead and stuck it in his cup anyway.
Next, the boys needed to get their whipped cream and....
Put it on top of their banana.
He's got his tongue sticking out from the deep concentration.
Bubby G was concentrating hard too.  Gotta get the whipped cream just right.
And finally the banana pudding was ready to eat.  My nephew was being cautious and took a very small bite at first to make sure it was good.
Bubby G...well....the picture says it all.
I guess the pudding passed his taste test cuz he is definitely digging in now.
A lady from our church gave us this idea and I think it was a hit.  I'll have to look up more ideas on ways the boys can make their own snacks.  This was fun.
