Magic Sandwiches

Time

  • 15 to 30 minutes

Materials

  • Wide-rimmed glass
  • Bread
  • Sandwich fillings
  • Food coloring
  • Milk
  • Small paintbrush

Directions

  1. Why eat ordinary sandwiches when you can have magically colored ones? Begin by cutting the bread into a circle, using the glass.
  2. Mix a small amount of milk with food coloring and paint designs lightly onto the bread, making sure that is does not become soaked.
  3. Toast the bread before making sandwiches.

Extensions

  • Sprinkle the colors with cinnamon before toasting and use it for a tea party.
  • Let your child make a sandwich for you after asking you questions to guide choices.
  • Use a color theme, like all red or red and yellow, for creating a sandwich.
  • Use cookie cutters to make fanciful sandwich shapes.
