How To Make It

How to make a sweet lion snack

1. Place 1 slice of a naval orange on a plate.  Slice 2 pieces of a banana and place these slices on the orange slice to make ears for your lion.

2. Grab a few black or red grapes and slice the grapes to make 2 eyes, 1 nose and a mouth for your lion.

3. Take 6 slivered almonds and place them on your lion – 3 on each side of the nose – for the whiskers.

4. Finally, grab some Kix cereal and arrange the Kix cereal around the outside of the orange slice to make the lion’s mane.
