This festive snack is healthy and utterly adorable!

Reindeer Sandwiches
  • Wheat bread
  • Peanut butter & jelly (or lunch meat)
  • Mini-pretzel rounds
  • Red peanut M & M's
  • Brown plain M & M's
  • A heart shaped cookie cutter
Make sandwiches as you normally would.  Use the cookie cutter to cut heart shapes from the sandwiches.  Then embellish the heart shapes upside down to look like reindeer.  

What could be cuter than reindeer sandwiches for lunch during the holidays?  My kids love these!

With pretzel antlers & M & M facial features, these little guys were a big hit with the kids!

Reindeer sandwiches- YUMMY!

I used a tiny dab of peanut butter to hold the M & M's in place, but if your child has a peanut allergy you could use mustard.  

The girls loved these snacks and had a great cookie decorating day!
