Pig Sandwiches


Pig Sandwiches

[30 Minutes]

Invite your children to help with lunch preparations as you create these cute "piggy" sandwiches!

You'll need:

• large bread circles • cream cheese • red food coloring • raisins

What to do:

  1. Help your child spread one large bread circle with pink cream cheese. Cream cheese can be tinted pink with a couple drops of red food coloring.
  2. Top with a smaller pink snout.
  3. Let your child use raisins for eyes and the bread scraps for ears. (Tip: With practice, he can easily prepare these without help.)
  4. Talk about other foods from pigs; ham, bacon, pork chops and sausage. Which make good sandwiches?
  5. Enhance lunch with a video such as "The Three Little Pigs", "Miss Piggy" or "Babe".

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • Imagine you were a real pig. Where would you live?
  • What sounds would you make?

Useful information:

Food construction is a wonderful activity to do together. It helps your child develop small muscle skills, eye/hand coordination and creativity.
