1. For the penguin tracks, cut a pretzel stick into three small pieces and arrange them, fanning out from the bottom center. Place on a cracker with cream cheese.

2. To make the duckling track, cut a small piece of cheese into a diamond shape as shown and place on a cracker.

3. Using pepperoni slices, cut four small circles and one large semi-circle to form a puppy paw print. Place on a cracker with cheese.
