Okay, first, olive snakes are actual real live genuine reptiles.
If you’re the sort who gets the royal squeamies at the mere sight of snakes, don’t look up what actual real live genuine olive snakes look like.
[Word Nerds: what is a group of eggs laid in a nest called? Look that up!]
Possibly more manageable for some is Cute Food for Kids‘s version of an olive snake.
Cute Food for Kids didn’t specify how long this particular olive snake should be.
I vote for you to just open up all the cans/bags of olives and start lining them up. When you run out of olives, that’s when you’re finished.
