Rudolph Christmas Lunch for Kids

I came across this cute pin and knew I had to make these reindeer sandwiches for the kids school lunches sometime before Christmas. I got around to making them in our favourite Easy Lunchboxes yesterday and they were a big hit with the kids! See the details below on how to make your own Rudolph Christmas lunch!

I like to make cute holiday lunches for the kids once in a while, but I don’t like to do anything over the top. This little lunch was really easy and the things you need to put it together are not hard to find.

What you’ll need:

Circle Sandwich cutter
Twisty pretzels for antlers
Red M&M
Candy eyes
Red/Green Jello
Other red/green foods

First make your sandwich, then cut it into a circle shape using a larger circle cutter. Use pretzels for antlers, candy eyes and a red M&M for a nose to make Rudolph’s face.  Lastly, add a variety of red and green foods to the lunch and that’s it!

I included some brocoli, strawberries, kiwi and red/green Jello but you could also do red and green peppers, christmas colored fishy crackers, a red grapes, etc. For the Jello, I prepared it right in the containers the night before.We absolutely LOVE our Easy Lunchboxes!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! We’ll see you back here for Simple things Sunday. :)

    Very cute; thanks for sharing. My children are 15 and 16 and make their own lunches, but I think our elf, Francois, might surprise them by having their lunches already prepared when they wake up. I’ll make some ‘googly’ eyes from royal icing this weekend when I have some made up to decorate gingerbread cookies. In fact, making reindeer out of round gingerbread cookies would be really cute and easy too. I have a ginger krinkle cookie recipe that is quick to make since you just roll the dough into balls – it’s much easier than rolling out gingerbread dough and cutting with cookie cutters.
