Brilliant Kids Lunch: Bookworm Sandwich

With it being so hot these days, my girls and I made a run to the library to get some new reading material so they could practice their reading (which is important over the summer break), and most importantly, so we could stay inside and enjoy the A/C! In honor of all the good books we have read — and those we are going to read this summer! — I made a bookworm lunch!


What You’ll Need:
1 slice of bread (cut in half)
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
1 apple (sliced)
white cheese
sprinkles (optional)
1 strand dried spaghetti


To Make Bookworm Sandwich:
Spread peanut butter and honey on each half of bread. On one half, arrange apple slices on top of the peanut butter, then place the other half to form the sandwich. Cut the cucumber into one longer shape for the worm’s body and a shorter shape for the head, as shown. Cut one end off the shorter shape to make it flat so it can stand up on the cucumber body, and arrange both cucumber piece on top of the sandwich. Use a lid (as from a sprinkles container) to cut the big eyes out of the cheese. Press tiny pieces of dried spaghetti through the cheese and into the cucumber to hold eyes in place. (These are covered by the pupils/sprinkles in the picture.) Next put sprinkles in place for the pupils, or use cucumber skins. Cut a tiny smile out of cucumber skin to complete the bookworm.


Don’t forget to read this summer!
