Turn an ordinary lunch into a special occasion with a snowman sandwich. Stamp out six pieces of bread using the rims of different-size glasses. Spread peanut butter on one side of three circles, lay a skewer down the middle, and add top slices. Use cheese spread for the nose and mini chocolate chips for the buttons, eyes, and mouth. Personalize by adding a paper hat and a scarf with your child’s name on it.
