We also made a hippo by using three pears for the head and
body. We used miniature marshmallows for the teeth, a sesame stick for the tail, and
cloves for the nose and eyes. The ears were made from fruit leather.
To the left
We made the cobra from a piece of rainbow fruit
leather. The head eyes, and tongue were additional pieces of fruit leather which we cut
out and stuck in place. Finally we "wove" the cobra onto a drinking straw.
The pyramid cake above is our own creation. The ideas
for the hippo and cobra came from Crayola Kids magazine. See our Resources
section for more information.
