We've been studying vikings and early explorers at our house lately. One day I decided to get a little creative with the kids' lunches and prepare a fun and easy viking helmet snack. The kids loved it and have asked for this creative lunch twist every day since!
How To Make A Viking Lunch
Make a sandwich. Using a knife, I cut off a small portion of the top in an a rounded arch.
Next, I peeled a banana, divided it in half, and placed both pieces on the sides of the sandwich, pointing up.
Then, using a broken pretzel stick and some raisins, I embellished the viking hat.
Eat and enjoy!
My kids really enjoyed this quick and easy treat! Asher gave it two thumbs up.
Viking Fun Fact: Horned Viking Hats are actually a myth! Traditional Viking Hats were rounded with a piece that hung down in front of their nose.
