Be creative and get the whole family to make some whacky animals from fruit and vegetables!
Paper and pencil
A selection of vegetables and fruit
Knife and cutting board (ask an adult)
Put on an apron and wash your hands.
Wash and dry the fruit and vegetables (especially if you make an animal you are able to eat afterwards).
Decide which animal you are going to make, it could be real or imaginary. Draw your animal on a piece of paper and work out which vegetables or fruit you will use.
Ask an adult to help if you need to chop or cut the vegetables.
Use the cocktail sticks or cream cheese to stick the vegetables or fruit together.
Wow! Send photos of your whacky vegetable animal to us!
