Olive Penguins

It’s been a while since we posted some cute fruit and veggie shaped animals (remember the apple turtles, banana dolphins, and veggie bugs?) so we present to you, olive penguins! They’re perfect for finger food appetizers, who can resist how adorable they are? The kids can help make this one, it’s super easy


  • Large black olives (for body)
  • Small black olives (for head)
  • Baby carrots
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Toothpicks


  1. Cut each mozzarella ball into about 4 pieces.
  2. Chop baby carrots into thin disks, then cut out a tiny triangle to make feet. Use the cut out triangle to make the beak.
  3. Slice a large olive & slide in a piece of cheese.
  4. Stack the large olive onto the carrot, then a small olive sideways onto the body. Hold them straight and secure with a toothpick. Insert the carrot/beak.
  5. Repeat as many times as you want/need. Enjoy!
