Oreo Penguin Snack

I bought some Oreo cookies and was getting ready to make a snowman snack (that I will post about later), when Sarah said, 'Hey Mom, let's make these oreos into PENGUINS!'

What a great idea - why didn't I think of that!

Here is our little

The eyes and beak are made from fruit snacks.
