My kids can be picky eaters, so lunch usually looks the same every day: the good ol' PB&J. So to make lunchtime a bit more exciting, we decided to spice things up a tad by making heart-shaped sandwiches

How We Did It

Heart-Shaped Sandwich

To make the sandwiches we used strawberry jelly to make them extra festive, but you can use whatever your kids like. We also used a cookie cutter so the kids could do the cutting, but you could cut the hearts out with a knife.

Have the kids cut the shapes out of the bread using the cookie cutters. We got two hearts per slice and then saved the scraps to feed the ducks at the pond near our house.

Then spread the jelly or add the topping of your choice.

Then the kids decorated some cut out paper hearts.

We added a foam sticker (a glue dot would work too)...

...then we stuck on a toothpick and another heart to top it. This made fun little toppers to stick in the sandwiches.

Stick the toppers in the sandwiches--and lunch just became a little more interesting.

These bite-sized treats was a big hit with my picky three-year-old, who asked if we could make some for her next tea party.
