Giving Back for Back to School & Bakerella!



Bakerella hosted a Giveaway on her blog for Nickelodeon's back-to-school idea tips at parents connect. Check them out and Give Back with a tip yourself!

I gave back with my tip


#342) Making sandwiches fun for the younger ones. Use large cookie cutter shapes to creat fun sandwiches. Make the desired sandwich first then use a cookie cutter and carefully press onto the sandwich making a fun shape. Wrap up in foil
to help keep it from getting smashed or place in a sandwich box.


My little girl is always asking for her sandwich to be cut into a shape. I have those big comfort grip cookie cutters and they work great for this.

The random integer genorator liked my idea best, and before I knew it, a package was at my door! My girls were so excited! I even got a peek at those super cute Cupcake Pop Recipe Cards she has! Thanks SO much Angie!















This is such a neat umbrella, double lined and huge!

this is just such a cute idea! i don't have any little ones to make lunches for but for *myself*, i'd still rock it.

These are soooo cute! Lucky you to get a surprise package :)

I'm thinking the apple cookie cutter would also be cute to make little sandwiches for one of our teacher luncheons. I'll bet they'd think that was darling!

What a great way to add a little fun to the kids lunches. Very cute!

There are some premade sandwich cutters that cut sandwiches into dinosaur or heart shapes... I kind of prefer those to cookie cutters because there is much less waste!

I bought really pretty holiday napkins for every holiday and I made their lunch every single day because I wouldn't let my children eat school food. Government approved says enough for me. I would send the napkins for the whole week of the holiday in their lunch bag. And for a few weeks at Christmas. Evidently they were the only ones who got them which made it special. I didn't know how much it mattered until my older son had moved and saw me do it one day and made a very sweet comment.

I'm wondering what you do with the leftovers. Do you throw them away?

Anonymous- Those are really cute cutters too, I like that you can get 2 little sandwiches out of them.

Amber- Cute idea!

kotiatina- No, I do not throw them out. They are a great snack for me later on. I don't mind the crust :)
