banana space ships space themed snack

Man landing on the moon was a great achievement. That day, man went off to somewhere so far away that it was impossible to see them or be near them. It’s a little like death in that we can’t see our deceased relatives. However, the men who went to the moon came back, very much alive. Let’s make a yummy space-themed snack to celebrate this great achievement and remind us that those who are absent in body are still with us. They will show up again someday too”¦ to welcome us into the galaxy of heaven!


– Bananas
– Slices of pineapple
– Canned Whipped Topping or Marshmallow fluff
– Dark blue paper plates
– Spoons
– Knife (to cut banana slices)
– Star Sprinkles (optional)


1. Peel the bananas and slice each in half from top to bottom, so that each child has one half slice.

2. Place half slice of banana flat side down on each plate.

3. Using a dull knife, snip the top of the banana on both sides to make a point at the top of the rocket.

4. Use the knife to make the bottom of the “rocket” flat.

5. Cut pineapple slices in half and then place each half on the sides of the bottom of the banana to represent the wings of the spaceship.

6. Add a spoonful of marshmallow fluff or stream of whipped cream at the bottom of the space ship for steam and smoke.

7. Have class count down, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and EAT.


While we’re enjoying our yummy rockets, let us remember that the moon is far, but we can go farther! When we die, we can go all the way to heaven, which will make the dark trip to the moon fade in comparison to the glory of the light of God!
