A Pinto Pony Sandwich to Make for Lunch

Let Kids play with their food and help make this adorable Pinto Pony sandwich for lunch. Or plan a theme party around Ponies. It's a great way to get more veggies into tummies too.

Items needed: 

  • 3 slices bread
  • Celery sticks
  • Radish slice (eye)
  • Yellow pepper
  • Orange pepper
  • Carrot sticks
  • Sandwich filling

Instructions: 

Stack two slices of bread and then cut out a large rectangle for the pony body.  Cut the third slice in half and cut out the pony head/neck.  From the top “pony body” section, cut out three small round circles.  You can use a straw with a large opening to cut the circles or another small container with an appropriate sized opening.  Use the straw to cut a corresponding size piece of bread (contrasting) or a veggie for the spots.  Add sandwich filling to pony sandwich and then add the spots.

Arrange on plate.  Add celery sticks for legs and then cut out ears, mane and tail from the peppers.  Cut a thin slice of radish for the eye, making a smaller “eye” from carrot to top this.  Make a tiny nostril from celery.  Garnish with tiny pieces of carrot sticks.
