Video of Creative Back to School Sandwich Ideas with Cookie Cutters

Add some fun to your child’s lunchbox with these cute ideas that I learned about during my visit to Walmart‘s headquarters this summer when Kraft, Smucker’s and Yoplait shared all kinds of simple creative ideas with us.


We’ve got a handful of cute cookie cutters at home and these work perfectly to cut out favorite shapes, designs or seasonal looks for any sandwich. Here’s a video of 8 year old Kenzie even making her own cut-out sandwich. My kids LOVE our Mickey Mouse cookie cutter since we’re Disney fans.

How To Make a Caterpillar Sandwich

Making the Caterpillar sandwich is super easy. You can use a rolling pin to thin out your bread and then make a sandwich or my easy trick is to just chop up a Tortilla roll up sandwich into segments! Plus the kids like the change of pace of eating a tortilla roll up versus ordinary bread.

Next, wrap in saran and pop on pipe cleaner legs and antenna, then drop on sticky google eyes and draw a face. Complete!



 Decorate a Banana to Surprise the Kids

Another easy fun surprise is to just doodle little faces on your kids Bananas. Mine love to see what kind of sketch I draw each day!
