Fun Snack For Kids: Weather Report Sandwich

Monday, August 22, 2016
If food is fun, kids will eat it. Chances are if you create a tree out of broccoli florets, kids will gobble it up. My girls were never big sandwich eaters until I started to make their sandwiches fun. Cutting them into fun shapes and adorning them with decorations suddenly made sandwiches edible. Go figure!

This super-cute weather-themed snack is healthy and fun. Serve it for lunch or for a snack and watch your kids devour it. 


Ingredients and preparation:
  • Cut a slice of braided challah bread from the middle of the loaf.
  • Using a cookie cutter, shape a slice of orange cheddar cheese into a circle. Place it partly under the bread. Cut the remaining cheese into small triangles, and place them around the circle as the sun’s rays. 
  • Add blueberries as eyes and as rain falling from the cloud. 
  • Slice off the side of a red apple, then use a straw to punch out two circles of its skin for the cheeks.
  • Add a small piece of fruit leather for the smile.
