You don't have to be a student of the puppetry arts to detect the tribute being paid here to Mr. Potato Head. Indeed, "old tuber eyes" is the patron saint of the entire Kitchen Table School: He proved food can be fun.
Raisins or olives
Peel a carrot and cut off both ends. With a paring knife, make a slit in the bottom of the larger end (adult artists only) and insert the Popsicle stick. Using the cream cheese as glue, affix raisins or olives for eyes and a nose, a slice of celery for the mouth, and parsley sprigs for the hair. For the arms and legs, cut green beans in half and affix with generous amounts of cream cheese (cut the legs at an angle).
TIPS: The ideal stage for a Kitchen Table puppet show is, naturally, the kitchen table. The puppeteer hides below, holding the puppets above the edge.
