Construction Paper Sandwich

May I offer you a sandwich? This one has LOTS of fiber. 


Construction Paper Sandwich


  • construction paper or cardstock
  • scissors
  • brown ink
  • glue


Cut two bread-shaped rectangles from medium brown paper. Cut a slightly smaller bread-shaped rectangle from cream-colored paper. Glue it to one of the rectangles, then ink the edges of both pieces of bread. 

Cut circles of red paper for tomatoes. Tear green paper and then wad it up. When you uncrumple it, it looks like lettuce.

Glue the tomatoes and the lettuce to the underside of the top piece of bread. 

Cut yellow squares of cheese, then ink the edges. Glue them behind the lettuce. To give my sandwich dimension, I glued folded strips of scrap paper to the bottom piece of bread before gluing the top part in place.  

Here's the completed sandwich! It looks (almost) good enough to eat. 

Out of curiosity, what's on your perfect sandwich? I like lots of cheese, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a tiny bit of onion. Yum. I could eat that every single day.
