Iron-a-Cheese Sandwich
Cut cheese into slices.
Place cheese on bread.
Top with another slice of bread.
Butter both sides of the outside of the sandwich.
Fold aluminum foil or wax paper over sandwich.
Iron both sides of the bread until they turn brown.

Pinwheel Sandwiches
Roll a glass or cup over a piece of bread to flatten it. Spread your favorite topping and roll up. Slice into one-inch pieces.

Make a Hand Sandwich
Have the children imagine their hands are sandwich ingredients and stack hands beginning and ending with bread.

Toaster Pop-up Game (from "Mudluscious")
Let's make a toaster to toast some bread:
One slice, two slice,
Drop right down. (Have children crouch down.)
Toaster's heating
Nice and brown.

Ready? Set?
Toast, pop up!
You look so good
I'll eat you up.

Painted Bread
Set out small bowls of milk and add drops of different food coloring to each bowl. Give each of the children a new paint brush (or use Q-tips) and a slice of white bread. Then let them use the colored milk to paint faces, numbers, flowers, monsters, or their own designs on both sides of their bread slices. Toast the bread, spread with butter and eat.
