Easy Viking Lunch for Kids

Sharing is caring!

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!

Need an easy lunch/snack idea for kids? This Easy Viking Lunch is a quick way to add a little fun to lunchtime with simple ingredients you already have at home. Such a cute idea for a viking unit!

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.
