peel banana and cut off ends.
slice banana diagonally so u get oval shaped pieces. u need 12 slices. thickness to ur liking.
arange 4 banana slices on a plate. two on two. top two pointing upwards and bottom two pointing downward. they should touch in the middle( it should resemble butterfly wings or a four leaf clover)
arrange 4 dried cranberries in the middle of the wings going up and down. this is the body.
arrange 3 raisins on top wins and 2 raisins on bottom wings.
take the icing or gel and make 2 long feelers coming out of the top half of the dried cranberry.
repeat with rest of ingredients.
feel free to exsperiment wih different fruits. good ones to work with are (strawberries, kiwi for the wings) pieces pineapple, chocolate chips, for decorating the wings (pretzel sticks or almond slivers for the feelers) get creative with the kids and have fun!
