(Edible) Sandwich Art for Kids
Pardon my re-post, but as some of you know, my site crashed and burned and now I am trying to revive some of my past glorious articles. This is one of them.
As an experimental part of lunch creation for Vanessa (and because she was getting bored of rice – on top of the fact that she eats really slow, so the teacher said it takes her over an hour to eat her lunch), I decided to try something compact, easy to eat and delicious. What could be more fun than sandwich art? You really do need some creativity because bread is a pretty boring ingredient, but with scissors and some colored vegetables or meat, you can make whatever you imagine. The tricky part is how to make it look presentable, but also practical in that it travels well (to school, on the bus, thrown around and jiggled).
Here are a few of my attempts. I’ve found that using play-doh cutters (ie: the fish) is pretty useful. It’s difficult to find cookie cutters as diverse as play-doh cutters and play-doh ones cost way less. Plus, there are a variety of websites that provide great ideas for sandwich art – just google it.
