may waddle in the snow,
but when they reach the icy sea
just watch how fast they go!
they cannot soar or fly,
yet penguins manage very well,
and let me tell you why…
their blubber keeps out cold,
their wings make perfect paddles
because they do not fold!
they brake with both their feet—
So tell me now, from all you’ve heard…
Aren’t penguins NEAT?
by Robin Bernard
18 jumbo ripe Black olives
18 small ripe Black olives
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 carrot (about 6 inches long and 1 inch wide)
18 long fresh chives
18 frill toothpicks (I used plain)
Fill each cavity of the jumbo olives with about a teaspoon of cream cheese
(I piped it in using a #12 tip)
This makes the the white stripe in penguins chest. Cut carrot into 1/4 inch slices,then out of each slice cut a small pie shaped piece. This makes the feet, save the piece you cut out, this will be the beak
In the x slit in the center of each small olive (where the pit was removed) press the small piece of carrot into the hole with the pointed end out.
Using a frill toothpick,stack head ( small olive ), body (large olive) and feet (carrot slice), adjusting so that beak, cream cheese breast and notch in carrot line up.
Tie chive around neck for the scarf.
