  • Chocolate and vanilla pudding (either prepared from a mix or purchased pudding cups)

  • Whipped topping or whipped cream

  • Ripe bananas

  • And you will need a few simple items from your kitchen:

    • Plastic knives
    • Plastic drinking straws


  • null

    • removing the leaves/tops of strawberries (easy tip: use a plastic drinking straw pushed through the bottom of the strawberries to shove the leaves right off of the top of the strawberry)
    • peeling and slicing bananas (ripe bananas can easily be cut with a plastic knife)
      • chopping strawberries
      • mixing up pudding
      • draining the pineapple (watch the sharp edges of the can)
      • layering the pudding, fruit and whipped topping in the cups
      • Sprinkles! Sprinkles are perfect for little hands!

    The first step is to mix up the pudding if you are using instant pudding mix. If you really want to simplify, you can buy pre-made pudding cups. Let your kids peel open the pudding cups (and maybe even lick the lids!).

    Next, drain the crushed pineapple. Use a colander with small holes so the pineapple doesn’t slip through the holes.

    Then, hull and chop the strawberries and peel and slice the bananas.

    Once all of your prep is done, it’s time to assemble the Banana Split Pudding Cups! Tip: use a cupcake pan to hold the plastic cups so they don’t tip over when the pudding cups are being assembled.
