Looking for a fun snack that will tide over the kids until the big feast? These bite-size birds are easy for kids to make and are sure to be gobbled up.
For each sandwich, spread vegetable cream cheese between 2 slices of cocktail pumpernickel bread.
For the head, use a small drinking glass or round cookie cutter to cut a circle from another slice of bread, then stick it to the top of the sandwich with a dab of cream cheese.
Likewise, add facial features such as pea eyes, a red pepper or pepperoni snood (above the beak), and a pepper, cheese, or cashew beak. Finally, wedge pepper, slivered-almond, or parsley-sprig feathers between the bread slices.
