This Birdhouse Sandwich is the perfect spring lunch for kids! Easy to make, no cooking required, and the kids will love it!
This just might be one of my favorite snacks to make with the kids. It’s just such a cute snack and one that is so simple. I always tell my kids that food isn’t meant to be played with but with a recipe this cute, it’s just going to happen.
We make this birdhouse sandwich recipe during the spring and summer months because it just seems fitting. I also think that this would be super cute for a tea party for the kids or paired with a fruit flower bouquet. Have them join in and be a part of the creative and delicious fun.
Do I need to use a cookie cutter for this birdhouse recipe?
You don’t have to but I find that it helps. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, you can freestyle the shapes and do the best that you can. The kids will love that you’re trying before they gobble it down!
Birdhouse Sandwich – Ingredients
- Fruit, I used watermelon and apples (with a small bird cookie cutter)
- Small circle cutter
- Fruit for garnish (berries, apples, etc)
Can I use other fruit for this birdhouse snack?
You can! I like to use watermelon and applies but you can use any fruit that you can cut out the shapes. Cantaloupe would be a great fruit option to use as well.
You can mix and match and try other fruits to find one that works with what you’re wanting. There are a lot of fruit options out there to choose from.
