Food Art: Sandwiches For Dad
I’m always making cute foods for my kids and they absolutely love it. When the kids wanted to do something fun for their dad for Father’s Day, I figured we could make some cute food for him too! Your kids can make their Dad a personalized sandwich that looks just like him, and Dad will love it! What Dad doesn’t love sandwiches?! And this will be one sandwich he will never forget!
What You’ll Need
A prepared sandwich on bread of your choice with sandwich filling of your choice: choose Dad’s favorites!
Various fruits, veggies and cheese: pick a variety of fresh produce that will help you make Dad’s face—pick some of dad’s favorites too!
A kitchen knife (please supervise children if allowing them to slice)
How To Make It
Here’s how to make 4 sandwiches that may or may not look like your dad. Use these ideas, and some of your own, to create a sandwich just like your dad!
This dad wears glasses and has lots of hair on top of his head. I used 2 cucumber slices for the glasses and cut holes out of the center with a knife. I used leftover cucumber skin to create the rest of the glasses. The eyes are made from black olives, the nose is a sliced carrot and the mouth is a slice of red pepper. Dad’s hair is made from Boston lettuce.
Does your dad have blonde hair or maybe wear a lot of ties? Then this dad sandwich is for you. This dad has Kix cereal for his blonde hair, blueberry eyes, a green grape nose and a red pepper mouth. I sliced the tie out of marble cheese and placed some Boston lettuce at the bottom for dad’s shirt.
Maybe your dad has a moustache, or wears a lot of bow ties? Does your dad have red hair? If so, then this dad sandwich is for you! This dad has sliced carrots for his red hair and carrot slices for ears, black olive eyes, a Kix cereal nose and a red pepper mouth. His bow tie is made from carrots and his moustache was cut from the crust of the whole-wheat bread.
Maybe your dad likes to wear ball caps and has blue eyes?! This dad sandwich could be the right one for you! I sliced a ball cap out of yellow bell pepper. The ears are made from carrot slices, the eyes are blueberries, the nose is made from Kix cereal and the mouth is a slice of red pepper.
