Owl Rice Cakes

Playing with fun food is our favorite way to craft, and it's also a fantastic way to enjoy a healthy snack! When craft time can double as snack time, not only can kids express their creativity, but they also get excited about eating what they've made.


That's one reason why we adore this owl snack. It's been a staple since one of the very first blog posts I wrote 8 years ago! It's amazing how something as simple as crafting owls can still bring so much joy. But really, how can you resist the urge to craft when it's this much fun?


 


Ingredients

  • 4 rice cakes, brown rice, plain

  • 1 medium banana

  • 4 tbsp peanut butter, all-natural

  • 1 cup blueberries

  • 1 medium apple, sliced in thin wedges (1/8in thick)

  • 1-3 mini carrot, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup cereal, Cherrios




Instructions

  1. Lay out rice cakes on a baking sheet (this will keep the mess in one area).

  2. Slice banana and set aside (children can do this with a plastic knife or you can prep ahead of time).

  3. Spread peanut butter over each rice cake and then place 2 banana slices towards the upper part of each rice cake. This will serve as you owl's eyes.

  4. Dab a small amount of peanut butter on the center of the banana slices to glue down a pupil for each eye.

  5. Place 2 apple slices onto sides of the rice cake (peel side outward), below the eyes (these are the wings).

  6. Using 4 carrot slices, cut into triangles and place beneath eyes for a nose.

  7. Finally, fill in the space between the apple-wings with cereal (feathers) and you're all set!


Don't forget to have you children tell a story about their owls before they eat them! Happy cooking!
