7 Fun & Creative Sandwich Ideas for Kids

Updated on May 19, 2017

Sandwich Ideas

Creative sandwiches for kids are great to make when your little ones have friends over. Even on a hot summer day, a creative sandwich for the kids before they hit the pool is worth making.

I found some excellent ideas that are almost too pretty to eat. I like the fact that these sandwiches are healthy, so let’s take a look and have fun being creative.

Tea Flower Sandwich

These sandwiches look so refreshing because of the colors. Home Cooking in Montana gets carried way. Each sandwich is a piece of art. They are easy to make because the ingredients are not that complicated.

I would even to so far as to say they are time savers, creative, and tasty. All you need are cookie cutters to shape the flowers from bread. The bread is filled with egg salad, tuna salad, meat loaf or any kind leftovers.

Tulip Sandwich

Oh my gosh, I love this sandwich because it is so colorful. Gosia at Kiddie Foodies shares this recipe. She suggests a bread roll, slice of ham, slice of orange cheese, red and orange peppers, cucumber, lettuce, and butter. I am sure you can substitute ham for salami or turkey. Kiddie Foodies takes any theme and makes a creative sandwich.

Cowbell Sandwich

This sandwich is adorable and comes with a nicely written rhyme. I can see the little hand picking up the cowbell and smiling as she eats the bell. Making this sandwich is so easy.

Little Nummies says all you do is cut the corners of the bread for ears, cut string cheese for horns and eyes, add a slice of apple for the bell, and a ham slice makes the nose with pickle slices as nostrils.

Kite Sandwich

Recipe.com creates an awesome sandwich, “Let’s go fly a kite.” It’s a breeze to make with any sandwich of your choice, and add celery stock, stick cheese, and baby carrots.

You just take your favorite sandwich and cut into a shape of a kite. Take the string cheese and cut it lengthwise, so you have strips for the kite dimensions. Make a kite tail by peeling a nice long strip from the celery stock. Make triangle pieces from the baby carrots, so they look like little bows on the tail.

Pinto Pony

Any kid who loves horses can’t resist this sandwich from Ziggy Zoom. They suggest you can have the kids make the sandwich as a party activity.

You just need 3 slices bread, celery sticks, a radish slice for the eye, yellow pepper, orange pepper, carrot sticks, and sandwich filling. The filling can be cream cheese, peanut butter, and jelly, or egg salad.

      Oh my gosh, these are adorable. But what do you do with all the extra that gets trimmed off? It seems like such a waste, and I want to teach kids not to throw away perfectly good food!

      Spanish Food,

      Thank you for visiting. Good point and I know what you mean. I have the food prepared before my kids arrive, though sometimes they help. I usually end up eating the scraps. : ) Nothing goes to waste. I can promise you that.

      That makes sense, Kenna. I guess you end up doing a lot of "clean-up" eating as a parent, anyway. (I don't have kids yet, myself.)
