Heart fairy bread sandwich...

There's lotsa love in the lunchbox today. My little guy loves fairy bread sandwiches, and I haven't made one for him in a very long time. I came across these cute heart shaped sprinkles on sale at Hobby Lobby the other day, and they very quickly found their way into my shopping basket. So, heart sprinkles....heart shaped cutter....all added up to a heart shaped fairy bread sammy. These are fun and easy little sandwiches to make, and kids LOVE them.

What you need to make a fairy bread sandwich: 
Two slices of bread
Soft fillings (PB&J, Sunbutter, cream cheese & jelly, Nutella, etc.)
Medium cookie cutter, any shape
Small cookie cutter, any shape, about an inch in diameter
Sprinkles, nonpareils, jimmies, sanding sugar

1. Use the medium sized cutter on each slice of bread.
2. Use the small cutter to cut out the center of one of the slices of bread.
3. Assemble the sandwich, then, fill the cavity with your sprinkles of choice.
Easy peasy!!

I chose to use the same shape medium and small cutter. But, you could mix up the shapes (heart shaped sandwich with butterfly cutout, i.e.) and make many cute fairy bread sandwich designs. You could easily adapt this sandwich for any occasion or holiday by changing up the cutter and sprinkles.

This is also a great sandwich to let the kidlets help out- it's easy, fun, and isn't too messy. My little guy loves to help out when I make them.
