Make This Giraffe Sandwich for a Fun Lunch

Looking for something fun to serve the kids for lunch tomorrow?  How about this cute little Giraffe sandwich.  It’s an easy way to get some extra veggies into the kids.  And you can even let them help make their own sandwich.

This is also a great little sandwich to serve for a jungle or zoo theme birthday party.

For the Giraffe sandwich:

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • Carrot rounds
  • Apple slice
  • Celery
  • Snap peas
  • Sandwich filling

Remove all crusts, then set one slice of bread on top of the other.  Cut out a large oval for the giraffe head and a curved neck.  Fill both sections with desired sandwich filling and assemble together on plate to form the giraffe.

Cut small rounds from a piece of carrot for the giraffe spots, eyes and knobs of horns.  Make ears from a piece of apple or other fruit or veggie.  Mouth and nostrils can be cut from any veggie or fruit scraps.  To make the branch, cut a thin slice of celery for the stem and use 2 snap peas or green beans for the leaves.  Garnish plate with a few “leafy” looking pieces of celery.
