Penguin Fruit Snacks

I am sure you have seen the Penguin Olives that have been around for a very long time & we have always thought they were so cute! We decided to come up with these Penguin Fruit Snacks for kids that are not fans of olives. These are so easy to make & perfect for parties or just a fun after school healthy snack! We came up with these for a Penguin Bento Lunch that we made awhile back & thought we would give you directions for these cute little guys.

Penguin Fruit Snacks

Large Black Grapes
Mandarin Oranges
Fruit Dip (we like this recipe from Lil Luna)
Blue Sprinkles (or any color)

Start out by connecting 2 grapes with a toothpick. Cut off the bottom of one if it’s not already flat. Spoon the fruit dip in a baggie & snip off the corner. We squeezed on just a tiny bit of dip on for the eyes & added sprinkles for the pupils. We also cut the ends from the oranges to make the beak. Attach with the dip. We squeezed on the bellies like this…

Then smooth them out with a knife…

Place them on a plate. Cut a orange slice in half & add for the feet. We also cut a grape into thin slices & added the slices on the sides for wings.

I love that you changed this idea up and used fruit instead of olives. So cute.

I’m super happy you changed the idea up and used fruit instead of olives/cream cheese/carrots. Not too many children in my area that will eat black olives and I was looking for something like this to use with a program at my library. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how to change it up. Thank you for already doing that! 🙂

olive these! they're grape!!! heehee 🙂
