Make Lady Bugs You Can Eat
What You Need:
- Mini chocolate chips
- String licorice
What to Do:
- Wash strawberries. Wash a strawberry and remove the stem and leaves.
- Make the head from a blueberry. For the ladybug's head, push a toothpick into the top of a strawberry, leaving about half an inch sticking out. Press a blueberry onto the toothpick.
- Make ladybug spots. For the ladybug's spots, push the pointed ends of some mini chocolate-chips into the strawberry.
- Add legs. For the legs, push six small pieces of licorice into the strawberry, as shown. Now, make a few more ladybugs and arrange them on a plate or a leaf of lettuce.
