Submerged Kids Lunch: Snorkeler Sandwich

Goggles are just funny when you think about it. Take any ordinary group of kids, put them in a pool, and suddenly they’re transformed into these drippy little aliens with big googly eyes. I can hardly keep a straight face when one of them comes padding up to me, breathless, asking if I just saw their latest cannonball.


My youngest daughter learned to swim with goggles on, and it was quite the revelation when she learned she could swim without them. As for me—well, I’m not a big fan of snorkeling in large bodies of water, mostly because of what I imagine may be lurking in said bodies of water. Nevertheless, I had fun creating this adventurous sandwich! You could play eye-spy during lunch, or pretend you’re underwater and imagine what you see.



What You’ll Need:
1 slice bread
1 slice white cheese (such as muenster, provolone or mozzarella)
lunch meat (optional)
2 peas
1 carrot


To Make Snorkeler Sandwich:
Use a cup to cut a circle out of the slice of bread and the cheese. Spread whatever condiments your child likes onto the bread. Layer lunch meat, if using, and cheese on top of the condiments. Use the crust to create the goggles; place the peas for the eyes. Slice large end of carrot crosswise and use round slice for the mouth piece. Slice remainder of carrot lengthwise into pieces for the snorkel. Arrange blueberries around snorkeler for the water.
