Grandparent’s Day Sandwich Recipe Ideas for Kids
How do you plan to celebrate Grandparents’ Day? If you’re not sure what to do for grandma and grandpa, help the kids to create a family-friendly sandwich-themed feast for everyone to enjoy.
Set up a sandwich bar buffet for the grandparents to enjoy. Your child can interview grandma and grandpa, asking them to choose their favorite sandwiches. Use the answers to create the buffet. Plate loaves of bread, rolls or flatbread square. Add deli meat, cheese, sliced veggies and spreads (such as hummus) to the sandwich bar. Complete the buffet with ketchup, mustard or other condiments.
Lettuce Roll Up
Give grandma and grandpa the gift of health with these leafy rolls. Flatten a large-sized piece of iceberg lettuce. Pat the lettuce dry and add sliced deli meat, cheese, hummus or other vegetables. Roll the lettuce into a tube shape. If the rolls don’t stay together, use a decorative toothpick to hold the veggie sandwiches together.
Croissant PB and J
Dress up the traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a buttery croissant. Slice the croissant for your child. Help your child to spread grandma and grandpa’s favorite fruit jam across one side and a nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew or hazelnut) onto the other. To turn this into a dessert-like treat, add mini marshmallows, melted chocolate or sliced fruit to the center.
