Sparkle Kitchen: Banana Rafts

Sparkle Kitchen: Banana Rafts

“The snack for Daddy, the snack for Daddy – Yum!” sing Martin & Sylvia in the At Home with Martin & Sylvia story "Daddy's Toe."

In the story, the children disappear into the kitchen and make their daddy something extra special while he rests his broken toe. They call the treat "Banana Rafts."

Banana Rafts Recipe

A snack creation by Martin & Sylvia


  • 1 banana
  • peanut butter
  • raisins
  • shredded coconut
  • toothpicks


Slice the banana into rounds, spread a little peanut butter onto each round, place a few raisins on the peanut butter, and sprinkle the entire thing with shredded coconut. Serve with toothpicks.

As Sylvia says, “The raisins are the people and the coconut is the snow.” But don’t forget the toothpicks! “Those are for eating,” Sylvia explains, “because it's fancy.”
