For very young children, this is a great snack that they can actually help you make. Just get the banana ready in a dish and set the other ingredients in front of your child and watch the boat form before your very eyes. You may even want to design a "sail" to stick in the boat when it's done. A popsicle stick and piece of paper is all you need. You can even use a little of the strawberry preserve to stick the paper sail to the popsicle stick! The raisins could become the sailors, carefully positioned on their boat to do the task of setting sailing. That should give your youngster a smile or two even before digging into this treat!
