Piano Sandwich Food Art - The Old Schoolhouse


Piano Sandwich Food Art


The key to liven up lunchtime is made out of bread! A white key is a strip of white bread, and a black key can be made with the cut-off crusts or strips of pumpernickel bread.

This fun activity can be closely followed by a fancy meal or elegant snack from your efforts – if you can stand to eat your work of art! This will also be a helpful recipe for your littler ones to practice basic kitchen skills while cutting bread in strips and neatly spreading on the sandwich filling.

Enjoy the creative kick of this food art recipe and nibbling up these dainty little sandwiches.
