Yesterday, I was feeling bored with our lunch options. I’m not overly creative in the food department {although I do manage to make Apple, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches on occasion.}

I see all sorts of cute things you can do with food on Pinterest, using cookie cutters, shapes and the like and I think, “Wouldn’t my kids love that?” And then I go on with my day, ideas unrealized :)

{By the way, I’m so thankful for my Facebook readers, they recently gave me lots of neat lunch ideas!}

Looking through one of L’s kid magazines, I found a super cute recipe called Toasty Robin so I recreated it with what we had on hand. I’m no artist, but they turned out pretty cute and the kids literally jumped up and down and hugged my legs when they saw them {can you tell I don’t do this much?}!

So here we are…

Robin Bread {aka PB&J Shaped Like a Bird}

What You Need for Each Serving:

Piece of bread

Homemade strawberry-rhubarb freezer jam or jam of your choice

Peanut butter or other nut butter

Orange cheese


Pretzel sticks

Gummy worm {optional}

What to Do:

  • Cut a large triangle out of the bread. Then cut a smaller triangle out of the remainder of the bread.
  • Spread peanut butter on both triangles.
  • Place the smaller triangle on top of the large triangle to make the robin’s wing.

  • Add a triangle shaped piece of cheese for the bird’s beak and a raisin for the eye.
  • Break and shape the pretzels under the bird to form the feet.
  • Spread jam strategically to make the bird’s “red breast”.
  • Put a gummy worm on the bird’s beak or do like we did and just use a few raisins in a row. :)

Super simple, kid-friendly and easy enough for a not-so-artistic momma like myself!

What do you serve for lunch at your house? I can always use new ideas, so please feel free to leave them in the comments!
