Grown-up steps
  1. Cut each cheese string stick in half. On the uncut side, carve a small area where the fingernail will go.
  2. Press the dull back of a butter knife into the cheese to make “knuckle lines.”
  3. Slice bell pepper and remove seeds. Then slice into thin strips and cut out nails or claws.
  4. Dab a small amount of cream cheese into the “nail bed.” Set your bell pepper nail on cheese finger, and repeat until done.
