We were asked by Babybel to create a Back to School Lunch & came up with this cute Owl Lunch! This fun lunch is so easy to make & my boys thought this was super cute. This is also a fun lunch that the kids can create all by themselves!
2 pieces of whole wheat bread (sandwich of choice)
2 Baby Carrots
Pretzel Spoons or Mini Pretzel Twists
1 Pretzel Rod
Kale Chips (or you could use green grapes)
Start out by cutting one piece of bread into the shape of a owl. Use that piece as a guide to cut the other piece using kitchen scissors. Place on a plate or a bento container (picture below). Cut a Babybel in half & place on the top for eyes. Press on raisins for the pupils. Break the pretzel spoons in half & press on the front sides to look like wings. You can also use mini pretzel twists. Use peanut butter to attach if needed. Cut the baby carrots using a knife to make the beak & feet. Place a pretzel rod at the bottom. We used kale chips for the leaves, but you could also use green grapes if your kids refuse to eat kale. I suggest trying the kale chips…you might be surprised at how good they taste!

We received this fun “Snack a little Bigger” package from Babybel to create our Back to School lunch. I am in love with this lunch container! The bottom pops out & it’s great for storage. It even includes a fork, spoon, & knife all in one!:) We also love the Weelicious Lunches cook book…so many great ideas!
Here is how we pack our fun Owl lunch up for school. Use the directions above for the Owl sandwich. We included yogurt with fall leaf sprinkles & a clementine. This includes a healthy lunch for the kids that they will love to eat up (& play with) at school!:)
