Help each child place a piece of lettuce on a plate and a slice of pineapple on the lettuce. Give each child of a banana to stand in the hole of the pineapple slice. Children can place mint leaves and cherries at the bottom of the banana to look like holly. When complete, they can eat their "holiday candles."
