Sandwich People


This recipe will make lunchtime lots of fun

Spread a slice of bread with peanut butter or cream cheese. Provide a variety of food items for facial features. For example:

  • Eyes -- blueberries, cherry tomatoes, grape halves, or radish slices
  • Nose -- cucumber slices, carrot sticks, cheese squares
  • Mouth -- apple or orange slices
  • Hair -- lettuce leaves, bean sprouts, or celery leaves

Invite children to create funny food faces!

Notes about working with food

  • Encourage children to do as much of the work as possible. Remember, it builds self-esteem and teaches cooking skills.
  • Be sure children wash their hands before handling food.
  • Be certain that you are aware of any allergies to foods that students might have.
