The Pin Junkie: Write A Secret Message On A Banana

Write a message on a banana

Here's a fun way to send a message to someone special.  Write it on a banana!  It's simple and only takes a few minutes, but would be a thoughtful surprise for the recipient.  To inscribe your message, use a dull pencil rather than a really sharp one.  Press down just enough to make a mark on the banana peel, but not enough to puncture through it.  It's kind of like a secret message because it won't show up right away.  As the banana ripens, the message will get darker.  Wouldn't this be perfect for a kid's lunch to take to school?

  8. Awhh, this reminds me of one Halloween years ago when my kids came back from trick or treating and a neighbour had given them "spooky bananas" with spooky messages on them. (She confessed afterwards she had run out of sweets!) It's a silly family tradition now, we have them every year!
