Penguin Snack

We’ve been learning about penguins lately, and it reminded me of these cream cheese penguins from We made them a few years back and they were so cute. Since both of my girls looooove black olives, I decided we’d make our own penguin snack one afternoon during our penguin theme. They turned out so cute and really tasty!

Penguin Snack...easy to make, tasty to eat!

I wanted to add a cracker of some sort to this snack, so they would be a little easier to handle. Using the cracker as a base also made it easier for Lovey and Tinker to help me make these little penguins.

Ingredients for Penguin Snack

Penguin Snack


The girls started spreading cream cheese on the pretzel crackers. As they did so, I cut the large olives into quarters to make wings. I also cut some carrot slices into a few small triangles for the beaks and feet.

Then we worked together to make the penguins. The picture above is of my penguins. The girls’ were a little more creative with their penguin designs, but they all tasted great! I really liked the taste of the pretzel mixed in with the cream cheese, and after playing a little bit the girls gobbled theirs up too.

If your little ones don’t like cream cheese, you could also use mozzarella slices. The pieces just won’t stick together as well.

In all this took about five minutes to prepare. Not bad for an easy way to add a little fun to snack time!
