School holidays are upon us. If you have kids at home looking for something to keep them occupied, why not get them involved in some Christmas food preparation. These little fruit sticks can be created with just a few ingredients, and will look great when they are complete. A foam lid becomes an ideal stand for the wooden sticks if you want to display.
If they are going to be eaten at a later stage, drizzle with an acid like lemon juice to prevent browning of the bananas.
Buttons can be made out of chocolate chips, or currants.
