Sometimes, we make fun things for our kids purely for their fun but I’d argue that in the case of these sandwich ideas – you’ll soon be making them for your own fun too.
Sandwiches aren’t the most interesting meals in their own right.
However, add a creative twist to how you put them together and they become absolutely fascinating. Your kids will be proud to take them to school and show them to their friends!
