Fun Holiday Sandwiches for Kids to Make


Kids love to play with food and this is the perfect activity to encourage it! Let the children make some fun Christmas or holiday sandwiches for lunch, a party or just for fun. A great time to introduce some interesting foods that can be used for decoration.

Items needed: 

  • Sliced bread of your choice.
  • Sandwich filling, such as cheese, lunch meat, peanut butter
  • Foods to decorate with, depending on the filling of the sandwich.
  • For Peanut Butter - use banana slices, raisins, carrots, celery
  • For cheese, meats - use red peppers, celery, carrots, olives, cheese


  1. Use two slices of bread for each sandwich.  Cut the basic shape of a face for the Reindeer.  Cut the shape of Santa's head, including the beard.  Cut two round holes for the Reindeer eyes or you can use raisins or olives later.
  2. Fill sandwich with desired filling. Add top slice.
  3. For Santa's hat, cut another shape to form hat and set above Santa's head.
  4. Use desired foods to make antlers, ears, etc as shown, or kids can just be creative. Remember that this is supposed to be fun so if they want to make a christmas tree or present, let them have fun doing so.
