In addition to decorating their own sandwiches, kids can use plastic knives to halve the cherry tomatoes and slice the black olives.


  • 2 romaine lettuce leaves, cut into very thin strips
  • 1/4 cup drained bottled roasted red pepper strips
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 pitted black olives, sliced
  • 1 Kirby cucumber, sliced
  • 2 whole wheat English muffins, split in half and toasted
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • Cooking Directions

    Place the lettuce, red pepper strips, tomatoes, olives and cucumber slices in piles on a plate. Spread the English muffins with the hummus, then use the vegetables to make funny faces on them: lettuce or pepper strips can be hair; tomato or olives can be eyes; cucumber slices can be ears -- use your imagination, adding any vegetables you like and have fun!
