This adorable veggie sheep is a great healthy snack for your kids and only requires three ingredients! I love cute foods that are easy to make and don’t need a long list of ingredients. I whipped up this fun snack for my kids in just minutes and they gobbled it right up. Here’s how you can make your own cute veggie sheep snack at home.

What you’ll need:

  • 7 cauliflower florets
  • 2 large black olives
  • Ranch dressing for dipping
  • Sharp kitchen knife


1. Arrange your cauliflower florets on a plate in a circle.

2. Take 1 whole large black olive and place it on the middle cauliflower floret for the sheep’s head.

3. Slice your remaining black olive into 2 small pieces for the ears, and 2 slightly larger pieces for the legs. Place these pieces on your sheep.

4. Using your ranch dressing, dot 2 small dots on the large black olive for the eyes.

5. Serve with a side of ranch dressing for dipping.

This cute little sheep will surely get your kids giggling and help them gobble their veggies right up!
