Place the blueberries and honey in a mini food processor or blender and finely puree them. Fold the blueberry mixture into the cream cheese to create a colorful and tasty spread.
Cut the greens off of the two strawberries. Slice one of the strawberries into thin slices.
Toast the bread.
Spread the blueberry cream cheese on top.
Place the sliced strawberries in a circle on the toast to create squid legs. Place the large strawberry on top. Spread a tiny amount of cream cheese onto the back of the candy eyes and place them onto the strawberry.
