Banana pudding – Checklist Update #16

There are some things on the checklist that, honestly, I’m not sure where they came from. Big girl isn’t really a big fan of stuff in pudding. She normally picks it apart. And, although delicious, I have actually not made banana pudding for her so I’m not sure where she got the idea about making banana pudding. But, it’s on the checklist. So, we’re going to do it. 🙂

I wanted a super simple recipe since I was going to have the girls help me as much as possible. I found this one and thought that it would be really easy and simple enough for two little kids to help with.

Big girl helped by cutting all of the bananas. She was really excited because it was the first time that she was in charge of doing the cutting. Thankfully, butter knives cut through bananas really easily.


Baby girl helped by putting the cookie layers into the bowl. She liked counting out each cookie before she put it in the bowl. Then, when all of the layers were done, all three of us added the Cool Whip to the top. All in all, not bad. Not bad at all. 🙂
