Ingredients for Strawberry Biscuits


Method

Take the Milk Arrowroot biscuits (or any other biscuits - these just have the perfect fishy shape) and carefully spread the cream cheese across one side of each biscuit.

Thinly slice the fresh strawberries and arrange the slices on top of the cream cheese in a "scale pattern" and add a "tail" at the back. This is the fun part of the activity and is a bit like putting together a puzzle.

Place the currant, blueberry or sultana on top of the strawberries, to create a fishy "eye" and it's ready to eat. Can you make a whole school of fish? Enjoy.
