Little Books for Little Cooks ~ Penguin Snack

Little Books for Little Cooks
Little Books for Little Cooks is a bi-monthly feature that focuses on creating some edible fun with your little one.   We will share a fun book to read with your little one along with a cooking activity to do that ties in with the featured book. Sometimes there may be actual cooking involved…and sometimes just fun!

by Kevin Schafer

Summary: Cute rhyming book all about penguins..."One little penguin alone in the snow, somehow it always knows which way to go." 

Depending on the age of your child, they may need more help to put them together, but they won’t need any help eating them! After reading the book together, have fun putting together these tasty little penguins!


You’ll Need:
  • English Muffins {I used whole wheat}
  • a carrot
  • cream cheese
  • sliced black olives
To Make:
  1. Slice the carrot and cut two small triangles in two pieces for the feet. Save one of the triangle pieces to use as a beak.
  2. Separate and toast the English muffin. Once toasted, cut the each side of one half of the muffin to create two wings for your penguin.
  3. Spread cream cheese on the belly of your penguin and lay it on a plate. Arrange the wings next to your penguin.
  4. Add the carrot beak and feet as well as an olive slice for an eye.
Hope you enjoy this cooking activity with your little one! To see more featured books and activities, click here!
