How to make Tzippy

[How to make Tzippy from Where the Wild Things Are]
- spaghetti
- ketchup (or tomato sauce)
- ham (or bologna, turkey, etc…)
- sliced cheddar cheese
- seaweed

– cupcake cup (I used foil cupcake cups, but if you need to microwave your food, use a paper cupcake cup instead. I’ve tried it, and the paper cup handled the moisture pretty well.)
– hole punch
– straw
– scissors
– round plastic cap

1. Make some spaghetti!

3. Take some pasta and put it in a cupcake cup.

Tips: Stick a spoon in the pasta, put a fork on the spoon, and slowly spin the fork to get the pasta around the fork. Put the spoon & pasta & fork into the cup, slide the spoon out, then remove the fork.

4. Cut ham with a plastic cap (I used a cap from a can of hair mousse), and put it on the pasta.

5. Use a straw to cut ham for her nose.

6. Cut sliced cheddar cheese with a plastic cap or big straw (I used a straw for bubble tea) for her terrible yellow eyes, and cut the top part off.

If you don't have any plastic caps to cut cheese, you can just use a spoon to trim it.

7-A. If you have a seaweed cutter for a smiling face like I do, use it to cut out seaweed.

Tips: If you put very thin paper under seaweed, it's easier to cut the seaweed out.

7-B. If you don’t have a special seaweed cutter, cut it freehand with scissors, cut seaweed out with a hole punch, and put it for the eyes.

*For step 7, if you don’t have access to seaweed, you can use black sesame seeds for the pupils, and a strand of pasta for her mouth.
