Leo the Lion Fun Finger Sandwich


Make Leo the Lion for the Kids at lunchtime. This is a great way to get kids to eat more veggies and they can nibble on the veggies and play with their food ... how Fun!

Items needed: 

  • 2 slices white bread
  • Coarse shredded cheese
  • Orange pepper
  • Radish slices
  • Small carrot slices
  • Olive slices
  • Chives
  • Cucumber
  • Sandwich filling of your choice



  1. Cut white bread slices into a large round circle.  Fill with desired sandwich filling.  We always try to choose something the kids like, such as turkey and cheese.
  2. Spread cheese on plate, into a circle to form the lion's mane.
  3. Set sandwich on top of cheese.
  4. For ears, use a radish slice and small carrot slice.
  5. Make eyes from olive slices
  6. Cut a nice size nose from orange pepper, or other veggie of choice, and set in place.
  7. From a cucumber slice, cut in half and then scoop out center to form the mouth.
  8. Use short Chives sections for the whiskers.
