Rice cakes are the not most exciting snack for kids. But with just a few subtle tweaks you can dress up an ordinary rice cake and turn it into adorable Easy Owl Rice Cakes. Your kids will be begging to eat these!
Why you need to make easy owl rice cakes

How to make rice cakes that look like owls
As you can see it just takes a few ingredients which you may already have at home to make these easy rice cake snacks.
These are fun snacks for kids to make. My kids like to help make these since they are so quick and simple. First, cover the rice cakes in peanut butter.
Next, slice a banana and place 2 slices on the rice cake as eyes.
Place 3 slices of bananas on the bottom of the rice cake as chest feathers. You will want the middle banana to lay slightly on top of the other two.
Take 2 blueberries and place them on the eye banana slices to make cute little owl eyeballs.
Slice a strawberry in half and place them on the rice cake as wings.
Cut the tip of the remaining strawberry and place it on the rice cake as a beak.
Now these owl snacks are ready to fly away! Okay, they actually won't be flying away. They'll be getting eaten, but that sounds a lot sadder.
