It's probably not a good idea for your kids to eat the sandwiches in this paper activity, but they'll have fun coming up with all sorts of silly ingredients!
What You'll Need:
- Construction paper
- Hole punch
- Other craft supplies
Step 1: Cut out 4 light brown or white pieces of construction paper in the shape of a piece of bread.
Step 2: Glue 3 edges of 2 bread-shaped pieces together, leaving an edge unglued. When the glue is dry, stuff small scraps of paper between the 2 layers. Glue the open end closed.
Step 3: Repeat for the other 2 pieces of bread-shaped paper. Then cut out other ingredients to fill your sandwich.
Lettuce could be made from green paper, crumpled up, then glued to a bread slice.
Tomato slices could be "stuffed" to look more realistic (just as you did with the bread slices).
Use markers, the hole punch (to make Swiss cheese), and any other available craft supplies to complete the silly sandwich.
When the ingredients are complete, glue the layers together to make delicious-looking artwork!
