Christmas Tree Sandwich.
This lunch box idea will certainly lighten your child’s school lunch box up with Christmas spirit. Take your child’s favourite sandwich and simply cut it into the shape of a Christmas tree, either with a knife or a biscuit cutter. Then use cut up bits of fruit and veg to decorate the tree.
During the build up to Christmas why not add everybody’s favourite reindeer to your kids lunch boxes? The Rudolph Sandwich is a simple peanut butter and jam filling but with the bread shaped into a reindeer’s head. The features are made from pieces of fruit such as strawberry’s, bananas, and raisins.
