Physical Challenge:
  • 1 slice white American cheese
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and cooled
  • 1 plastic knife
  • Frozen peas and carrots (a few)
Cut Egg
  • Take the better-looking egg and carefully slice about 1/2" off the bottom (the fatter part of egg) so it will stand on a flat surface.
  • Cut the remaining egg in half, widthwise, and remove the egg yolk. You will use the fatter half of the egg white as the head of your owl.
Add Wings
  • Cut two triangular wings out of the cheese slice.
  • Wedge the wings under the owl's head. (The pointy side of each wing should be facing the back of the owl.)
Complete Owl's Face
  • Push the head onto the whole egg (the body). Be careful not to break the cheese in pieces.
  • Cut small slots in the head for the eyes and nose. Insert the peas and carrots in the slots to complete the face.
