Mickey veggies??

Help! My daughter needs to make a "produce friend" to celebrate National Nutrition Week and I need a few ideas. It has to be make of fruit and/or veggies using toothpicks or pins. Of course she wants to make something Dis and Mickey is the easiest. I am thinking an orange for the head and something smaller for the ears but not sure what. I am not creative so any ideas would be very helpful! THANKS!!!

If you want him to be all the same color you could use a large orange for the head and clementines or mandarine oranges for the ears.

Apple with plum ears.

There are those books for babies that have all the characters/animals made from veggies. I don't have any but have given them as gifts. They might be an inspiration for you.

I just looked it up on amazon. There are MANY written by Joost Elffers. Go have a look. He uses black eyed peas for eyes, etc. Its very creative!
