Kids Butterfly Sandwiches

Today was my daughters' play date with her friends. 8 super excited kids. They had a ball.

I wanted to make like a simple and easy finger food kind of sandwiches. We were also having pizza for the kids.

I had planned to make star shaped sandwiches with my cookie cutter. But, I was at Target last week and they had these cute butterfly sandwich cutters for a dollar! Can you believe it - Sometimes God just wants me to shop at Target to make my life easier! Thank You God. Thank you Target. Perfect. I picked those up and decided that it would not be stars but butterflies. Besides, little girls just adore butterflies!


To make this quick sandwich, just get plain white bread. Apply a little bit of mayo on all the slices. Keep a cheese single on top of one of the bread and cover it with the other.

Use you cutter and cut them.

Perfect. Cute butterflies.
Assembly line.
Well..they look so plain. I wanted to spruce it up a bit. So, decided to make little eyes and antennas.

I had some corn - perfect for eyes. You can also use peas for green eyes. I chopped a tomato lengthwise and used them for the antennas and also a nice red smile.

There's my first butterfly.

Aren't these cute?

Beautiful Assembly line!

The kids loved these. It was more fun than food - so they just ate it fast!


Peace out!
