Owl Bento with Fruit Flower and Broccoli

As I read The Gruffalo to my daughter for the eleventy millionth time, the owl caught my eye and I was inspired to try an owl bento.

Owl Bento Box

I don’t have an owl cutter, and having failed Cutting and Coloring in kindergarten, I had to be a bit more creative since I couldn’t cut out ears.

This cheese sandwich was cut into a circle by a large, round cutter. However, you can place a mug or glass on the bread to cut it and cut around it.

I then cut out two eyes from the leftover cheese with a small cookie cutter, made two eyeballs made of nori (seaweed that is used for sushi), and a nose from a bit of the carrot that I cut up for the branches. The feet are also made of leftover cheese, as are the wings.

In the top right corner, I placed a layer of grapes at the bottom of the flower cup and on top I placed the rest as a flower, with a cherry as the middle. Finally, I used some leftover broccoli from the couscous that my husband made to fill in the gap and also to give her a bit more health.

This is one of my favorite bentos so far!
