Fun Themed Party Sandwiches

Looking for a fun and affordable way to incorporate a theme into your party? Why not give these themed sandwiches a go.  Easy to make & imagine the faces of your little ones as their sandwiches are served up in the shape of a Pirate, Elephant or Lion! A nice & healthy party food option as well and might help fussy eaters (like mine!) eat more fruit & veg.

How awesome do these look ?

Even plain sandwiches or fairy bread can easily be fancied up by cutting out fun shapes with cookie cutters.

Simple and affordable but still super effective and fun for little ones!  (and probably grown ups as well :) )
