Bear sandwich

Bear sandwich

Lunchboxes are a constant chore and even when we’re busy and stressed, we need to take time to ensure a nutritious balanced meal. When they come back empty, it’s worth it!

Simple animal faces only take a few minutes but can create lots of excitement.



  • bread
  • cheese
  • olives (or raisins)
  • cucumber (or other veg)
  • carrots (or other veg)


Step 1 Place sandwich into the lunchbox and add an oval of cheese for the nose area.

Step 2 Add two circles of cheese for the eyes.

Step 3 Then olives for pupils.

Step 4 Use a circle of cucumber for the tip of the nose.

Step 5 Slice a disc of carrot in half for the ears.

If the lid doesn’t fit snugly, pack with a bit of cardboard to hold in place.
