Today marked week two of my Little Foodies class at Creative Kids in Garwood, NJ.  We all had so much fun!  We started off with an art activity…rolling and sculpting model magic.  It was a great way for the kids to warm up their hands and practice using the rolling pins for today’s recipe…Sandwich Sushi.  A fun and creative way for you and your kids to make sandwiches.

 

We started off rolling our slices of bread out until they were very flat using a rolling pin.

We then spread a thin layer of sunflower seed butter (some of us used cream cheese) all over the bread.

Everyone chose their favorite fillings…

Sandwich Sushi

sliced whole wheat sandwich bread

peanut butter (or almond butter or soy nut butter or whipped cream cheese)

filling options:

cucumber, cut into long, thin sticks

banana, cut into long, thin sticks

raisins

carrot, grated

apple grated

 

Lay a slice of bread on a flat surface (kitchen table or a cutting board) and roll it flat with a rolling pin.

Spread a thin layer of your favorite nut butter (or cream cheese) and jelly over the bread.

Arrange some of your favorite fillings over half of the bread making sure not too over stuff the roll.

Starting at the filled end, tightly roll bread up and press to seal into a roll.

Slice into 4-5 even pieces with a sharp, serrated knife and enjoy.
