More Inspirational Minecraft(MC)
I’m sure most people reading the MC Madness series are either interested in throwing a party or making something cool for your loved one. After looking at a plethora of pins, images, and more, I can guarantee a mind or two has been swimming from all the possibilities. Yet, below are a few more ideas worth mentioning:
Banana Dolphins. Image courtesy of Luz’s Unique Creations on Facebook.
We’re all in to creating, or at least most of us that visit this page, but sometimes…doing something so simple does the job in a big way: It puts a smile on the faces we love. Here is a healthy snack that only takes minutes to create.
1) Fill containers with grapes of both colors, leaving enough room for the banana to stick in.
2) Cut the end tip of the banana long enough to hold a grape and mimic a mouth.
3) Use the marker to make dots for the eyes of the dolphin.
4) Place each banana into the container, pull apart his mouth and place a grape in it.
Option 2: For Those with more Time on their Hands
Looking at this idea, another one came to mind: Instead of using grapes for inside the container, make blue gelatin.This can be achieved by either making the blue gelatin in a large bowl and after it firms up, scooping up pieces( it will look like waves) into each container or just pouring the gelatin into each individual container(which could be more cumbersome in the refrigerator), but it will look like still waters.
Place the cleaned and prepared bananas (as in in directions above) into the gelatin and place an orange fish cracker in the mouth.You can also scatter a few crackers on top of the “water.” Enjoy!
