Bring a bit of the jungle into the kitchen with these edible Tiger Paws and it's a great way to tempt fussy eaters. In our house, anything with tigers is popular right now, as is craft that you can make and eat all by yourself. Getting kids to make these would be a fun birthday party activity too. Today, I have used fresh sliced tomato and black olives, because my kids like to eat them, however you could just as easily use shaved ham and sliced carrots - or some other creative combination. Let me know what works best in your kitchen-jungle?
