What a Hoot! Sandwich

When Christy @ Superheroes & Princesses mentioned her owl sandwiches to me, I knew it'd be a hit with E. Christy's were open-faced which wasn't going to work in a packed lunch, but I found these instructions for an owl PB&J from Cute Food for Kids.  I simplified it a bit for a quick but fun lunchtime surprise.

To make this owl, simply cut around the crust, then scoop off the top (I used a biscuit cutter). Slice your scoop in half for the wings, push in two chocolate chips for the eyes, and add a triangle crust beak, gluing it in place with peanut butter. That crust "branch" won't get eaten by my picky 6 year old, but it looks cute and helps wedge the sandwich in place.

One Odd Old Owl by Paul Adshead

Has anyone read this book or anything by Paul Adshead? I admit I have not, but the reviews on Amazon intrigued me. They speak of hidden pictures and riddles throughout. If there's one thing my six year old loves, it's a good mystery. Our library doesn't have this particular title, but I've got a hold placed on another Paul Adshead book, so I'll let you know how it is!


  1. I love this! I'll have to make this for my kids' lunch boxes too!

    That book looks interesting - I have to check the library for it!

  2. I'll have to make these for my preschooler! He'll love it! Adorable!

  3. I really love your sandwich! How cute!

  4. Thank you so much for the link! I'm so glad you like my sandwich owl idea. Love how you simplify it!!!

  5. I will try these owl sandwiches this week. My oldest will be very surprised. :) Thank you.

  6. We're having these for lunch today. Thanks for the great idea!

  7. That owl is sure to be a hit in Lily's lunch! I haven't read any books by Paul Adshead, but judging this book by its cover, it looks adorable!
