Make your own eggimal zoo by using hard cooked eggs, toothpicks, vegetables (celery, carrots, broccoli, lettuce cucumbers, green onion, green peppers), cheese, olives, pickles, corn chips, cherry tomatoes or anything else you can think of for eyes, noses, fins, wings, and feet.
Note on Food Safety: Ensure that eggs are kept chilled until ready to use and eaten right away (or placed in the refrigerator until ready to eat).
Attach an olive using a toothpick to one end of the egg. Dig small eye holes and insert raisins. Surround the head with broccoli stocks. Make a slit down the back and fill in a row of corn chips. Add celery legs and a long carrot stick tail.
For the body, cut a large slice from the small end of a harcooked egg. Cut wigly legs from a cheese slice. Arrange on plate and set body on top. Make eyes and nose from pieces of celery and pickle. Attach to head with part of a toothpick.
Use two hard-cooked eggs for these eggimals:
Cut a loarge wedge out of one egg to form a mouth. Attach small pieces of toothpick and put in place as teeth. Make eyes from celery and cucumber slices; attach with toothpicks. Put head and body together with a toothpick.
Cut a zig zag pattern for teeth in first egg. Attach pieces of celery and green pepper for eyes. Make a slit in second egg and fill with a row of corn chips. Add pickles for feet and tail. Put head and body together with a toothpick.
