Hooting Kids Lunch: Nerdy Little Owl

My girls dressed up as hipster nerdy animals for Halloween, which inspired my nerdy owl. Since owls are a pretty big deal in fall decor this year, and nerds are now making a cool comeback, I decided to do a mash up of the two! Personally, I think owls are adorable (okay, and nerds, too). Happy fall!


What You’ll Need:
1 sandwich (your choice)
baby carrot
pretzel rod


To Make Nerdy Little Owl:
Use a cup or circle cookie cutter to cut a circle out of the sandwich for the body. Cut two round slices of apple. Cut the insides out of the two apple slices for the glasses. Use a vitamin bottle or small circle cookie cutter to cut circles out of white cheese for the eyes. Cut a raisin in half and use for the pupils. Use small slices of apple for feathers on top of the owl’s head. Cut a baby carrot in half and then shape each half into feet. Use a small strip of carrot for the beak. Arrange on a plate as shown, and enjoy!
