Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Sandwich Idea | Fun Kid Food

Nature’s Harvest® bread provided information, coupons, a gift pack, and a gift card to assist with this post.  All opinions remain my own- as always- and do not reflect that of Nature’s Harvest® bread.

“Finding Dory” swam into theaters over the weekend so I thought this would be a great time to share an underwater themed kid-friendly peanut butter & jellyfish sandwich idea with you all. As a mom of three kids under 7, “fun” is not usually at the top of my list when it comes to meals.  Presentation goes a long way, but I’m usually in such a rush due to children who truly think they are starving on a regular basis that “fun” goes right out the window.  As part of a challenge from the folks at Nature’s Harvest® bread, I came up with this Peanut Butter & Jellyfish sandwich using items I had on hand.

Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Sandwich for Kids

 

What You Need for Your Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Sandwich

Bread- I used Nature’s Harvest® Honey Wheat Whole Grain bread
Your Favorite Peanut Butter & Jelly

For the Tentacles & Mouth:
1 Cucumber, thinly sliced
String Cheese would also work.

For the Eyes:
Apple, Banana, Cheese- anything you can cut into a circle
2 Tiny Sprinkles (You may substitute raisins as welll.)

For the Nose:
Strawberry, Blueberry- anything diced into a tiny piece will work

Tools Needed:
Round glass or cookie cutter

 

PB & Jellyfish Sandwich Idea

Assembly is quite simple and I’m sure the photos speak for themselves.  After cutting your peanut butter & jellyfish sandwich into a circle, place two round slices of apple (or banana) for eyes adding two sprinkles (or raisins) to complete them.  Using a thin slice of cucumber or string cheese, create the mouth and finish the face with a tiny berry for the nose.  Arrange your slices of cucumber or string cheese to resemble jellyfish tentacles and your peanut butter & jellyfish sandwich is complete!  You could add a cute fish shaped boiled egg as a side.  I had some tiny fish fruit cutters (from a small animal cutter set) so I added some cute kiwi fish along side our peanut butter & jellyfish sandwich.  Use whatever you have!
