RECIPE: Pickle Things by Marc Brown

Pickle Potato People

Variety of large and small pickles
Large Whole Potatoes
Plastic Toothpicks
Various Spices (optional)

Create your own pickle potato people using toothpicks to attach various pickles to potatoes.  Use small gherkins for ears, hair, arms, and legs.  Use small, sliced dill pickles for eyes, mouth, and buttons. Vary the creatures by adding items such as cinnamon sticks.
