This was today’s lunch. My daughter said, “Hoot, hoot, hooray!” when she the owl sandwich.
So easy to do, with just a couple cuts. I added a strawberry beak, some cucumber eyes with raisins for pupils and a couple strawberry feet to stand him on the pretzel branches.

How cute! Lots of great fun ideas!
Thanks! I think it was almost too cute – the litlest one didn’t want to eat his.

Even I’d say hoot hoot hooray to that too :). I should start doing that: being more creative with my daughter’s dishes…
I don’t do things quite this fun usually – but it does make making pb&j a little more interesting! (Even mom gets bored making the same old same old.)

I love what your daughter said when she saw the sandwich! That’s definitely something to keep a record of! The banana slices and raisins made great eyes. So cute! The strawberries were a good idea, too. I used a red pepper for my owl’s beak, and Emmy didn’t care for it. My daughter Lily loves red peppers, though!
Here’s my version of an owl sandwich: http://www.lemondroppie.com/2011/11/setting-sandwich-bar-too-high/
Didn’t know you made one! LOL – can’t wait to check it out!
My son LOVES strawberries… His owl needed a new beak several times during lunch. 🙂

Love this! How cute!!
Thanks – it was fun to make. Sometimes as a SAHM it helps to stretch your brain a bit, even if it’s just making lunch.
