How Do You Unzip A Banana? (Words Of Wisdom And Love Ages 4–8)

 

Big Yellow Banana

Can You See A Zipper?

Do you like to eat bananas?

Bananas are one of the world’s coolest fruits besides being a great healthy treat.
Have you ever really looked at a banana? Go to the kitchen and see if mom has one.

Just take a really good look at it.

 

 

They are yel­low, long, slim, smooth and really very handy.

Funny though, you can’t smell it or eat one with­out peel­ing it.

One of the best things about bananas is that they are tal­ented.
You just don’t have to eat them as they are.

You can:

  • bake banana bread
  • bake cook­ies
  • dip them choco­late frozen covered
  • slurp cream pies
  • and even in a big banana split 

How good can that be?

Bet­ter still, bananas are prac­ti­cal. You can carry them any­where you want.

You can eat them when you are walk­ing, play­ing, on a pic­nic.
You can do more than one thing at at time as well when you are eat­ing your banana.

Some things can be sit­ting in your favorite chair lis­ten­ing to music, read­ing a great book, watch­ing TV, or play­ing on your com­puter.  All these can be done while you are eat­ing your yel­low “buddy.”

Best of all, it’s so sim­ple to eat one. Just pull the peel off.

You can pull the cov­er­ing one at a time. You can also peel it all the way down. You can eat the banana half way and then try to peel the skin all the way down. Eat­ing a banana really is simple.

But there is a lit­tle prob­lem with bananas that you may have expe­ri­enced. Once you peel a banana it is prac­ti­cally impos­si­ble to close the peel back up again.

We Have A Problem

 

Have you ever seen a banana with but­tons or a zipper?

Maybe you have never tried to close a banana? Glu­ing and tap­ing is not a good idea. Sta­ples or paper clips are not safe and we should never even think about doing that.

That’s the big deal about eat­ing bananas. That is the one problem.

 

Once you break open the peel, you have to eat the fruit. The peel won’t stay back up.
Besides, bananas do not taste very good if you leave it out in the open.

Now just think about this: Life can be like peel­ing a banana.

We can make choices that once we have decided to do them,
we can­not take it back or put it in place again.
Some­times we can say unkind words to a friend, brother, or sis­ter.
We can’t take those mean words and put them back in our lips and zip them up again.

Words Can Hurt

Some­times we can do self­ish or hurt­ful things to oth­ers. Once those actions are done,we may want to take it back and close them away. Like a peeled banana, it is not possible.

 

 

 

 

 

So what can you do make things bet­ter. I know you are not a banana.

What you are though is a good per­son. So you do not have to be “yel­low”.

Take a brave step.…..

What can you do not to be a unzipped “banana”?

  • You can say “I am sorry.” When we make unwise choices, we can ask for forgiveness.
  • We can also do some­thing to show that per­son we really meant it by doing
    some­thing that will make them smile.

Unlike your favorite banana, you can get back to being the best and enjoy­ing this won­der­ful uni­verse again by ask­ing for for­give­ness when we make a choice that hurts others.

Unlike a banana, you can be whole again by just kind in your thoughts, words,
and actions.  Try it.
