I know what you’re thinking: back to school already? It seems like summer just started, right? Yet here we are, mid-July and getting ready to start thinking school supplies and lunch pails instead of swimsuits and sand pails! I’m actually going to be trying cyber school with my son this year, which means it’s more important than ever that I have a a solid lunch menu plan for him. Up until this year, the school took care of his lunch needs, so I had at least one meal of the day that I didn’t have to worry about! Except, of course, on the days that he asked to pack lunch!

Whether you’re homeschooling, cyber schooling, or sending your kids off on the bus every day, this turtle bagel sandwich recipe inspired by Moana is exactly what your kids need to fuel their young minds! Let’s check out how easy it is to make! Watch the video, then print out the recipe card for later!

Turtle Bagel Sandwich Recipe for Back to School Lunches

Ingredients:

  • 1 bagel (your child’s favorite flavor)
  • Butter (optional)
  • Enough cream cheese to cover bagel half (approx. 5 to 7 tablespoons) – all within your tastes!
  • 1 cucumber
  • 6 stuffed green olives
  • 4 toothpicks

Directions:

  1. Cut bagel in half and toast if desired.  Spread butter and cream cheese evenly on one half and create your bagel sandwich. Set aside so that it cools down as you’re preparing your other ingredients.
  2. Cut a portion of the cucumber: about 4 inches from the tip (since it’s rounded, it mimics the shape of the turtle’s head). Cut yourself a thin slice from this portion and insert about half of it into your bagel sandwich.
  3. Take 4 of your green olives and insert a toothpick in each one. These will serve as your turtle feet, so place accordingly on your bagel sandwich.
  4. Remove the inside filling of your remaining two green olives and use as turtle’s eyes.
  5. Bon appétit!
