Make Christmas packed lunches extra fun with this easy Santa themed lunch idea for kids - with super easy Santa sandwich idea!
I can't believe we are in the last week of term, I have no idea where this year has gone! Christmas is looming ever closer, and I really must start getting myself organised. Like most people at this time of year, I have been ridiculously busy recently, so my festive lunches have been getting more and more simple as December has gone on.
This lunch was another really quick one to put together - a few dried fruit strips (bear yoyo) and a piece of cheese transformed a standard square sandwich into a simple Santa. I added a couple of red coloured foods on the side and had a festive Santa themed lunch ready in no time at all!
In this lunch (packed in our Yumbox Panino) Small Child had his Santa sandwich, made on oat and seeded bread and filled with roast beef slices. I cut it into a neat square, then added two strips of a strawberry bear yoyo and topped them with a piece of cheese, which I turned into a buckle with the aid of a small sharp knife.
On the side I packed slices of beetroot, topped with a reindeer cupcake ring, and red grapes and raspberries, which I topped with a Santa cupcake ring. I finished the lunch off with some small cubes of cheddar cheese in the dip well, under which I had hidden a nice surprise of a few mini marshmallows.
Small Child clearly enjoyed this lunch as there wasn't a crumb left when he got home!
