Give your child a special treat in their lunchbox. Â Make a fairy sandwichÂ to brighten up their day!
It’s not long after school starts that the lunchbox woes begin. Â A fairy sandwich is the perfect treatÂ to change things up in a little way, mark a special occasion, or just plan for a fun lunch! Â Both my kids love the surprise of finding one in their boxes.
What You Need to Make a Fairy Sandwich:
Two slices of bread
Soft fillers (PB&J, Sunbutter, Cream Cheese & Jelly, etc)
Small cookie cutter, any shape, about an inch in diameter
Sprinkles for cookies
To make a fairy sandwich, simply use your cookie cutterÂ once on one slice of bread. Â Spread your fillings on the otherÂ slice of bread and place the top slice on. Â Using a spoon, carefully pour a layer of sprinkles in the cut out area. Â Press down so they stick to the filling, you just need a thin layer of the sprinkles. Â Once the area is filled in and pressed down, place your sandwich in a sandwich box and refrigerate. Â Don’t forget to keep it a secret till lunchtime!
These Â sandwiches work best with soft and sweet fillers, as listed above, in order for the sprinkles to stick to the sandwich. Â Be sure to check any allergy policies at your child’s school before using peanut butter or choose an allergy-safe alternative.
