Mr. Snowman Cold-Cut Sandwich
This holiday school lunchtime recipe is sure to put your little one in the winter spirit and is quick and easy for you to make. With a sandwich of your (or your preschoolers) choice, all you’ll need to craft this yummy snowman sandwich is your best happy face making skills. Create a round cut sandwich and use either blueberries or olives to arrange your snowman face. Make sure not to forget the carrot nose! For side, you can use fruit and veg and the recipe suggests, with pretzel sticks in place as Mr.Snowmans arms.
Christmas Tree Sugar Snap Peas
A Christmas mix of delicious and healthy treats, these sugar snap peas will serve as the main attraction for your child’s holiday school lunch. Arrange your sugar snap peas onto a kabob skewer or popsicle stick before making a triangular cut in the shape of a tree. Top your sugar snap tree with a cherry tomato and lay it onto a vegetable of your choice (the recipe uses radish). Add a sandwich in the shape of a gingerbread man and a mix of pomegranate seeds and grapes to finish out this delicious treat.
Rudolph the Cherry Tomato Nosed Sandwich
We love this adorable recipe for a Rudolph. Another easy to make lunchbox idea for your preschooler, this recipe needs very few ingredients. With a sandwich of your choice, Mozzarella cheese and olive slices will serve as Rudolphs eyes. Use pretzel sticks to create his reindeer antlers and a cherry tomato to serve as the famously red nose. Star fruit and pomegranate seeds make for a great sweet treat. Add slices of vegetables as the final piece for this yummy holiday school lunch.
Buddy the Elf Holiday Lunch
This recipe from Lunchbox Dad is perfectly out of the box as a fun lunchtime surprise for your little one. Elf transforms from a favored holiday family film to one of our favorite holiday lunchtime ideas. To make the famed elf hat, use spinach tortilla wrap bread with turkey and cheese as the filling. For the belt of the hat you will need a strip of cheese (preferably cheddar). Lunchbox Dad opted for corkscrew pasta to serve as Buddy the Elf’s squiggly curls. Add in snowflake shaped pretzel bites to pay homage to Buddy’s holiday decorating skills. This recipe can include fruit and vegetables of your choice along with a snowflake cut-out Babybel cheese that is Santa approved.
