Star Shaped Sandwiches

Prep Time: 20-30 minutes.
Use cookie cutters to change the shape of your everyday sandwich! Pro Tip: Don’t fill your sandwiches until after you’ve cut the bread! That way you don’t waste as much.
Ingredients: Cookie cutters, bread, and fillings (pb & j, ham and cheese, turkey and cheese, Nutella)
Directions: Cut pieces of bread using cookie cutters. Using the filling(s) of your choice, make fun shaped sandwiches with your cutouts!

 

Apple Sandwiches

15-20 minutes
We all love apples with peanut butter, so why not make a sandwich out of it (sans bread)? As long as an adult is coring and slicing, the kids can do the rest!
Ingredients: Two apples, nut butter/nutella, granola or cornflakes
Directions: Have an adult core and slice the apples in rings. Take an apple slice and slather it with nut butter or Nutella, then sprinkle granola on top. Use another slice to put on top!
