Fruit People

These are a few of our favorite ideas, but feel free to improvise.


  • Limes
  • Lemons
  • Oranges
  • Kiwi
  • Sticks
  • Twizzlers
  • Peppermints
  • Toothpicks
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Candy buttons
  • Glue
  • Any other foods that strike your fancy


  1. For the duck: stack two lemons on top of each other. Make a hat by cutting a marshmallow in half and attach it to the “head” by inserting a toothpick. Glue chocolate chips onto her face for eyes and wrap a red fruit chew around the neck as a scarf.

  2. For the snowman: attach 3 oranges by stacking one of top of the other and hold them together with toothpicks. Use multicolored candy canes for arms, a cookie for a hat, and candy sugar dots for buttons.

  3. For the deer: for your deer’s antlers, stick 2 thin sticks on the top of your kiwi. Glue a marshmallow to the back of the kiwi as the tail.
    You get the idea…have fun!
