Sandwich Kabobs

Sandwich Kabobs

When it comes to packing lunches for children, a lot of parents eventually find themselves in a lunch rut. Kids get bored of the same thing day after day and need some variety, but you don’t always have to drive yourself totally crazy coming up with completely new ideas. These sandwich kabobs are an easy way to make lunch more exciting!

These are pretty easy to make. All you need is your favorite sandwich fixings like bread, meat(s), cheese, and veggies! You will also need some type of skewer (see note at bottom of the post) or popsicle stick and some small cookie cutters! There is really no right or wrong way to make these. It’s totally up to you and what your kiddos enjoy. This is a fun lunch idea that the kids can also help you make as they enjoy cutting out the fun shapes with the cookie cutters.

And how great would these be for a birthday or pool party?! The possibilities are endless!

Sandwich Kabobs

I mean, seriously, look how cute they are!! And they are so easy to make! I also mixed up a strawberry blueberry smoothie to go with them!

Sandwich Kabobs

*I have gotten some questions regarding the safety of using wooden skewers for children. Obviously, I would not recommend giving young children the wooden skewers unless you feel they can safely eat from them. If you are concerned about this, you can always just skip the skewer all together and just place the cut up pieces in a container or sandwich bag. You can also try using popsicle sticks since they do not have pointy ends!
