Now that the holidays are over and the second half of the school year has begun, lunch boredom is quickly taking hold. It’s hard enough to pack a lunch that your children will actually eat without them getting tired of the same old thing, too.

Luckily, I’ve learned that all it takes is a little creativity and even the most common lunch foods can become fun once again. And since February 14th is right around the corner, there’s no better time to get creative and make this owl-themed Valentine’s Day Lunch for kids!

This fun and delicious Valentine's Day Lunch for Kids is one your children are sure to love! Made with Santa Cruz Organic products, it's good for them, too! I've also included a sweet Valentine's lunch note you can download, print and use!

And if you are thinking, “Who has the time to make all of this and put it together into a lunch?” I believe you’ll be surprised at just how easy it is. It literally took me about 10 minutes to make the applesauce container owl, prepare and cut the sandwich, skewer the grapes, and then put it all together in a bento box. So, are you ready to see how to make this Owl Always Love You Valentine’s Day Lunch?

Valentine’s Day Lunch for Kids Supplies and Ingredients

To make this cute Valentine’s Day lunch box theme you will need the following ingredients and supplies:

  • Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter (we love their Creamy Dark Roasted Peanut Butter!)
  • Santa Cruz Organic Fruit Spread  (Strawberry is our favorite!)
  • Santa Cruz Organic Applesauce (4 oz. container)
  • sandwich bread
  • red grapes
  • 2 small chocolate hearts

  • 1 small glitter foam heart
  • 2 wiggly eyes

Applesauce Owl

This Valentine’s Day Applesauce Owl is super simple to make and oh so cute! To get started, you will need to cut out the following shapes from construction paper:

  • 2 small red triangles for the ears
  • 2 small pink triangles for the inside of the ears – make sure these are a tad bit smaller than the red ones.
  • 1 small yellow triangle for the beak
  • 2 small pink circles for the eyes (I traced a dime to make my circles)
  • 1 red heart, cut in half for the wings (I made my heart about 3″ tall)

Once you have everything cut out, you simply glue it into place on the container. That’s it! Your Valentine Owl is complete!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Owl

Next up is the PB&J Sandwich Owl. Peanut Butter and Jelly is such a classic lunch box item, but when you jazz it up a bit like this owl-themed sandwich, that winning flavor combination will once again become a favorite.

To make the owl sandwich go ahead and prepare a PB&J like you always do. Next, take a knife and carefully cut the two bottom corners of the sandwich into a wedge shape to form the wings. For the beak, cut a small triangle from a piece of bread crust. Next, add the two chocolate hearts as eyes, and your sandwich owl is complete!

Cupid’s Arrows and Other Sides

For the Cupid’s Arrows, simply spear a few small red grapes on to a heart-topped skewer. I found these skewers at my local dollar store.
