dump truck lunch


I am busy planning a construction themed party for Simon in a few weeks. We're having an afternoon party, so I won't be serving sandwiches, BUT if I was going to I would make these ones. This was a very simple sandwich to make. I started by cutting off the crusts. My kids don't like them, and quite frankly, neither do I. I cut the sandwich about 1/3 of the way down, so that the dump part of the dump truck was a little bit bigger than the front part. I decorated the dump truck with leftover bits from the crusts- that I should point out, the children removed as soon as they received their sandwiches. I made wheels out of a sliced strawberry. The apple tree was made of green grapes, with the leftover bits from the strawberry wheels. The dump truck wouldn't be complete unless it was carrying a load of dirt though. I added a few chocolate chips to the dump truck, you know, to make it feel more authentic :)
