How To Make It

1. Place your 2 circles of watermelon on top of one another, with the smaller circle on top.  Place these on a plate.

2. Using your knife, slice your strawberry into 2 small triangles for the ears, 2 small circles for the feet, and 1 slightly bigger circle for the nose.  Place these on your piggy.

3. Place 2 blueberries on the piglet for eyes and 2 sprinkles on the nose.  Peel a thin slice off 1 baby carrot, curl it up and place it next to the piggy for the tail.

4. Now let’s add some fun decoration to the plate.  To make the sun I cut 1 baby carrot into 1 thin circle and 8 thin slices.  Place these on your plate.  Your little piggy also needs a trough to eat from.  I made a trough by cutting another carrot into 1 thick slice and 2 shorter, smaller slices.  Place these on your plate.  Fill your trough with delicious Kix cereal.
