Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Halve the green apple and cut pieces of the cucumber to create the fins, tail, and head of a sea turtle.
  2. Using small pieces of toothpicks, attach the fins, tail, and head to the halved apple (see image #1). Place chocolate chip “eyes” on the cucumber “head”.
  3. Cook a hotdog according to package directions, and then cut “tentacles” on one half of the hotdog. Attach blueberry eyes with pieces of toothpicks (see image #2).
  4. Using a knife or cookie cutter, cut out the shape of a fish and place small slices of cheese on the fish as its stripes or fins (see image #3). Place blueberries around the fish as “bubbles”.
